NIST 800-171 Compliance Community Group

The purpose of this group is to provide a forum to discuss NIST 800-171 compliance. Participants are encouraged to collaborate and share effective practices and resources that help higher education institutions prepare for and comply with the NIST 800-171 standard as it relates to Federal Student Aid (FSA), CMMC, DFARS, NIH, and NSF activities. As other federal government regulatory items for cybersecurity are announced, they are discussed as appropriate.
