CSIAC Webinar – Meeting DFARS Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) Compliance Standards for Federal Contractors

January 30, 2018 @ 12:00 - 13:00 EST

Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) established guidelines that required all government contractors to establish a program to protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). All federal contractors were required to meet DFARS minimum security standards by December 31, 2017 or risk losing their DoD contracts. This webinar will detail the steps to become compliant including following the National Institute of Standards (NIST) procedures for Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Systems, and Organizations, Special Publication 800-171. Although the deadline is past, many companies still have much work to do to be fully compliant. This webinar will walk through the background of CUI, what organizations have done to become compliant, and outline where the CUI program is headed.
