DFARS NIST 800-171: Simplifying Compliance through Automation

Coalfire Webinar

In October 2016, all Department of Defense contractors were directed to implement NIST 800-171 standards “as soon as practical, but not later than December 31, 2017.” As this deadline approaches, organizations must begin to document how certain types of federal information is protected when processed, stored and used in non-federal information systems. As this protected information can be easily disseminated and distributed across a dizzying number of platforms and systems, organizations have found that documenting compliance can be a time-consuming and difficult task.

Join Tim Sandage, Senior Security Partner Strategist, Amazon Web Services, Coalfire’s Michael Pitcher, VP of Cyber Engineering, and Roger Cheeks, Coalfire’s Managing Principal of Security Monitoring and Analytics, for an hour-long, complimentary webinar on Wednesday April 19th to learn more about the DFARS 252.204-7012 and NIST 800-171 requirements and how AWS and Splunk can help empower compliance.

Attendees will learn:

  • The importance of NIST 800-171 and relationship of this publication to other industry compliance standards 

  • How AWS services enable meeting NIST 800-171 compliance for DFARS requirements 
    • That AWS data feeds provide unique and valuable insight for compliance reporting
  • How using Splunk can help automate NIST 800-171 compliance and provide real-time compliance status
    • A true solution must include dynamic and static input in a unified view
    • Having real time and actionable compliance data helps identify gaps and increase overall security posture.
    • Correlating multiple data sources can reduce compliance efforts
