NIST 800-171 Assessment Services

The climb to the top starts with A-LIGN

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-171 mandates that nonfederal contractors and subcontractors that handle, transmit, or store controlled unclassified information (CUI) or covered defense information (CDI) comply with NIST 800-171 or CMMC (Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification) to be awarded and maintain federal government contracts. Compliance with NIST 800-171 and CMMC is in sight with A-LIGN.

I would like to thank [A-LIGN] and [their] staff for the great service A-LIGN has provided KeyPoint on our recent FISMA audits. A-LIGN has been truly a great partner with the flexibility [of] getting staff on site to meet our customer requirements.”
