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 – 3.9 Personnel Security and 3.10 Physical Protection. A good information system security footprint must include considerations for protecting both the Physical environment itself and the Personnel within it. This webinar will discuss what is required when securing CUI within your environment and how to train and screen employees so that they are adequately secure by NIST standards.

Topics of discussion include:

  • An overview of the concepts and principles critical to personnel security and physical protection
  • 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
