If you are currently, or are planning to be, a contractor or subcontractor within the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) you must comply with the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation (DFARS) 252.204-7012. These regulations state that a contractor or subcontractor must implement the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-171. To help you know how to comply with these DFAR regulations, this series of webinars will overview the 14 Cybersecurity “Families” and their respective controls.

In this webinar we will examine NIST SP 800.171 – 3.11 Risk Assessment and 3.12 Security Assessment. Proper NIST implementation requires ongoing action to consistently and methodically improve upon your security controls. This session will address how to assess the Risk posed to your Information System and evaluate your Security efforts as directed by NIST.

Topics of discussion include:

  • An overview of the concepts and principles critical to risk assessment and security assessment
  • A review of the reference documentation that is essential in evaluating your compliance with these controls
  • A review of the controls, their structure, and what the federal regulations are asking of you and your company
