January 13, 2022 – Member meeting NIST 171, DFARS and CMMC 2.0 – our resources and roles

Thursday, January 13th online from 7:00 PM to 9:PM

Presenter: Robin Basham, Chapter President, CEO EnterpriseGRC Solutions.

Management Discussion: We do not have a quorum of candidates to move forward with our new board. Istvan Berko will engage with our voting chapter members to gain consensus for how we cost effectively stay alive with a 100% remote model.

In the absence of in person conferences and meetings, Robin has not been able to coordinate conferences, which has been our sole source of revenue for the last five years.

Some board members with more than five years in our roles will explain what it means for us to step away with dignity knowing what it takes to support the next generation of leaders. With revenue and support a lot of our community can do this, but we have to change the way things are done.

NIST 171 Assessment is really Seven NIST, an Array of CMMC and an Array of DFARS requirements

Why the topic update: People are seeing the words DFARS and CMMC thrown into webinar topics. Our board wants to assure that our membership gets qualified and accurate training. Since Robin is recently engaged on this topic…

Topic: NIST 171 Compliance: The NIST Special Publication 171 series, Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 7012, and Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification – Regulating Protected Controlled Unclassified Information

Suppose you are a nonfederal service provider whose offering might involve handling Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). Up till now, it might not have been an issue. Still, suddenly either your Government Contract Management Officer or an upstream distributor for one of your products has informed you that your contracts and work orders won’t move forward till your offering is listed in the DoD Supplier Performance Review System as having passed NIST 171. Now what? This paper explains what you need to know about the NIST SP 800-171 Assessment Methodology and its use in demonstrating adequate security as detailed in the recently updated DFARS clause 252.204-7012 Safeguarding Covered Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting

In short, DFARS Rule 2019-D041 means that US Federal Agencies cannot award your contract unless you’ve met with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-171 DoD Assessment Methodology and have validated that assessment either by a Self-Reported, Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS) score, or, as certified by a DoD accredited assessor (third party) using the prescribed Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Framework.
