The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), in coordination with the Department of Defense (DoD) and the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), will host a Workshop providing an overview of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) on October 18, 2018.
The agenda for the Workshop shows a full day of panels, including those addressing DoD’s “Safeguarding Covered Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting” Clause (DFARS Cyber Rule), overviews of NIST Special Publications (SPs) 800-171 and 800-171A, and Government expectations when evaluating contractor implementation of the 800-171 security controls.
In addition to the panels described in the agenda, the Workshop may provide an opportunity to address questions about DoD’s April 2018 draft guidance for the Department’s assessment of contractors’ System Security Plans (SSPs) and implementation of the security controls in NIST SP 800-171.
The NIST Workshop is open to all interested stakeholders and is free to attend. Registration for in-person attendance can be made at the NIST website and is required by October 11, 2018. NIST has stated that the Workshop also will be available via webcast. Advanced registration is not required for the webcast.
