Working with Business Lens and under their direction, we set forth a very well-defined course of action that resulted in Retlif achieving compliance within nine months of us starting the effort. The knowledge that Business Lens brought to the effort brought clarity and clearly expedited our road to compliance.

When we were told by our customers, that we needed to become CMMC 2.0 certified, the task seemed daunting and confusing. We met with Business Lens and they immediately put us at ease that we could obtain this certification at a fair price and in a reasonable time period to meet our customer’s needs. The people at Business Lens have worked with us side by side to help us implement what is needed for us to be CMMC 2.0 certified. They are friendly, accessible, and helpful. The process has been seamless and organized.  We are impressed with their work and would recommend their services to companies who need to obtain CMMC 2.0 certification.



What is NIST 800-171?

The National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-171 governs controlled unclassified information (CUI) in non-federal information systems and organizations. This set of standards defines how to safeguard and distribute material deemed sensitive but not classified.

Who needs to comply?

All contractors are obligated to comply with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF). For government agencies such as the DoD (Department of Defense), GSA (General Services Administration), and NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), new NIST rules took effect in 2017 that require anyone who works with CUI from those agencies to implement specific security measures for the handling of data.

When is CUI involved?

Controlled unclassified information (CUI) or FCI (federal contracting information) can be as basic as a label with a third-party name or as specific as a blueprint, intellectual property, or complete federal contract. Data that is sensitive does not have to be classified in order to be CUI. CUI includes identification, sharing, marking, safeguarding, storing, disseminating, destroying, and managing information.
