NIST 800-171 Assessments

Winquest makes it easy and cost-effective for DoD prime and sub-contractors to comply with recent NIST 800-171 regulations. These requirements are no longer voluntary. NIST 800-171 codifies the requirements that any non-Federal computer system must follow in order to store, process, or transmit Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) or provide security protection for such systems.

The Winquest 800-171 assessment is basic and designed to be low-cost and high-value since most of the companies have only recently learned about this requirement. Instead of a detailed and expensive audit, Winquest performs a high-level assessment:

  1. Interview personnel to determine their current compliance
  2. Write and deliver a report covering each of the 110 requirements set forth in NIST 800-171
  3. Create a draft Plan of Actions and Milestones (POAM)
  4. Provide a Security Systems Plan (SSP) template (Winquest can write the full plan for an additional fee, but often clients are more familiar with their own systems and can complete the SSP on their own.)
  5. Winquest remains available to answer follow-on questions

The fee for our 800-171 assessment service is kept reasonable but varies by customer size, the complexity of their network and the type of contracts they have. Contact Winquest for a quote today.
