Virginia Federal Government Contractor Calls On HRCT For NIST 800-171 Compliance Help

NIST compliance would be difficult enough, even if it wasn’t constantly changing and updating.

Federal contractors have long been required to meet certain standards for the protection of classified information, and as the industry and technology have changed, so have those standards.

Case in point — the Department of Defense (DoD) recently issued its interim final rule, which comes into effect on November 30, 2020. This adds even more compliance-based work for contractors that want to stay in the industry and continue winning contracts. Needless to say, it’s difficult to stay compliant without any help.

That’s why this Virginia federal government contractor got in touch with HRCT:

“I am an IT administrator for a DoD Federal Contractor and we are investigating options for NIST 800-171 compliance.”

They reached out through our website’s 24/7 chat feature, and our team immediately responded:

“I recommend you speak with one of our Client Service Representatives who can best answer your request and recommend possible options for moving forward for the services.”

Our team arranged for a meeting so that we could then learn more about the contractor, their current state of compliance, and consult on the next steps.
