NIST SP 800-171 Standard

The NIST SP 800-171 Standard, developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, provides recommended requirements for protecting the confidentiality of controlled unclassified information (CUI). Advance Welding is in compliance with NIST SP 800-171 so the company can formally monitor its cybersecurity and physical security practices and refine them as appropriate. The requirements of NIST SP 800-171 are organized into 14 families, including Access Control, Awareness and Training, Audit and Accountability, Configuration Management, Identification and Authorization, Incident Response, Maintenance, Media Production, Personnel Security, Physical Protection, Risk Assessment, Security Assessment, System and Communication Protection, and System and Information integrity. If you have questions about the process for handling CUI, or about physical security practices, please contact us.
