The NIST SP 800-171 “Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Systems and Organizations” document was first published in December 2016 to provide guidance for government agencies looking to protect sensitive unclassified federal information that is housed in nonfederal systems and environments. Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) is considered sensitive and relevant information about the U.S. that is to be protected from public disclosure. Any organization who stores or transmits CUI for any federal or state agency must comply with NIST SP800-171, including contractors and third-party vendors. The document was updated in June 2018 and clarifies the role of third parties in data breach incidents and guidance on types of data to protect and how to apply those protections.
NIST SP 800-171 includes 14 security requirements families including: Access Control; Audit and Accountability; Awareness and Training; Configuration Management; Identification and Authentication; Maintenance; Media Protection; Personnel Security; Physical and Environmental Protection; System and Communications Protection; System and Information Integrity.
