Cyber Friday: NIST SP 800.171 – 3.6 Incident Response

January 1, 1970  
Start Date

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 – 3.6 – Incident Response.  Beyond the legal requirements for notifying partners in the event of a cyber incident, NIST also stresses the importance of a well-crafted Incident Response capability.  This webinar will review what the requirement expectations are and how they relate to best practice.

Topics of discussion include:

  • An overview of the concepts and principles critical to incident response
  • 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
  • A discussion of the different strategies for implementing these controls
