Is your organization confused about where to apply NIST SP 800-171 requirements?
How does the DoD’s CMMC Assessment Guide in?

This entry into As the CMMC Churns is the 1st part in a two-parter where we lay out the confusion between the NIST SP 800-171 “Scope of Applicability” that organizations are required to apply and the CMMC Assessment Scoping Guide’s “CMMC Assessment Scope.”  This part specifically looks at the NIST SP 800-171 “Scope of Applicability” and how it applies to an organization.

Our next part will look at the “CMMC Assessment Scope” and its relationship to the “Scope of Applicability.”
