NIST SP 800-171 Attestations

As an authorized CMMC 3rd Party Assessment Organization (C3PAO), Peak InfoSec is allowed to conduct NIST SP 800-171 Conformity Assessments of an organization and attest to their conformity.

A successful Conformity Assessment for NIST SP 800-171 and Attestation by Peak InfoSec can benefit a company in multiple ways:

  1. Improved cybersecurity posture: The Conformity Assessment evaluates a company’s compliance with the 110 security requirements, which are designed to protect sensitive government information. By identifying weaknesses and vulnerabilities within the company’s network and systems and providing guidance on how to address them, the Conformity Assessment can help the company improve its cybersecurity posture and reduce the risk of cyberattacks and data breaches.
  2. Enhanced compliance: Compliance with NIST SP 800-171 is required for companies that handle sensitive government information. By undergoing a Conformity Assessment, a company can assess its compliance with security requirements and identify areas where it needs to improve. This information can be used to develop a plan to address any weaknesses and improve compliance.
  3. Competitive advantage: Many government contracts require companies to comply with NIST SP 800-171. By undergoing a Conformity Assessment and demonstrating compliance, a company can improve its competitiveness for these contracts and potentially win more business within the Defense Industrial base (DIB).
  4. Increased customer confidence: By undergoing a Conformity Assessment and demonstrating a commitment to cybersecurity, a company can increase customer confidence in its ability to protect sensitive information. This can help the company retain existing customers and attract new ones.

Overall, a Conformity Assessment can benefit a company by improving its cybersecurity posture, enhancing compliance, providing a competitive advantage, enabling better risk management, and increasing customer confidence.
