On December 31, 2017, certain defense contractors with nonfederal systems that contain controlled unclassified information must implement NIST SP 800-171 if their contracts are subject to DFARS 252.204-7012.

While this standard isn’t new, your systems must comply in 2018.  Many engineering firms have controlled unclassified information and they must be aware the enforcement requirement and how the DOD will enforce this rule.

Join Jonathan Williams to learn how to help your firm comply with the new DFARS rules. You'll understand how noncompliance with the new policy could affect your contracts, explore areas for better compliance, and how to judge whether this issue effects your contracts now or in the future.


  • Identify when your firm and its systems are subject to the requirements of the DFARS rules
  • Understand how to comply with the rules and what the federal contracting officer needs from your firm
  • Examine the punishments that could arise under noncompliance with NIST SP 800-171 and the ways to mitigate those risks
  • Understand how the new rules could affect non DOD contracts
