NIST Sends SP 800-171 Update to OMB for Review

Yesterday the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had received NIST Special Publication 800-171 (Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Systems and Organizations) for review. This update was not listed in the Fall 2018 Unified Agenda.

The last revision of this document was published last June. It is not clear what changes that NIST is proposing to make to the document; there is nothing on the SP 800-171 web site.

This document establishes cybersecurity requirements for electronic systems that store, receive or send Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). It mainly covers contractors, but facilities covered under the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program would be required to comply with these standards on systems containing Chemical-Terrorism Vulnerability Information (CVI).
