NIST Control Families

Understanding NIST SP 800-171: Framework for Protection 

NIST SP 800-171 outlines a framework mandated by the DoD for protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) in non-federal information systems and organizations. It comprises 14 control families, each representing a specific category of security measure. Fulfilling these stringent requirements is essential for organizations serving the DoD and handling CUI. 

“Compliance is crucial for our business. Using Exostar tools like PolicyPro, we were able to achieve 110 out of 110 NIST 800-171 controls.” — Todd Chapman, UHI Group

Addressing CMMC 2.0 with Exostar PolicyPro 

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) 2.0, created by the DoD, is a forthcoming accreditation process that will rely on an objective third-party audit to evaluate the effective implementation of NIST SP 800-171 controls within any organization serving the defense supply chain.

Exostar’s PolicyPro will serve as an invaluable tool in this process, offering efficient policy creation/analysis/update, documentation, and management features to help organizations achieve and maintain policies required by NIST SP 800-171. 

The relationship between NIST SP 800-171 and CMMC 2.0 is direct. NIST SP 800-171 outlines specific controls for storing, handling, and transmitting CUI, while CMMC 2.0 will provide the mechanism to verify the implementation of these controls through its certification process by a DoD-approved third-party.
