NIST 800-171 - A framework to protect sensitive information on federal contractor systems and networks

NIST 800-171 is focused on the protection of the Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) environment, which is where sensitive data related to United States national security is stored, processed, or transmitted. Contractors and subcontractors working with federal or state agencies that handle CUI generally have to comply with NIST 800-171 to do business with them.
