Can someone here help me complete the NIST SP 800-171 Assessment?


Jc Cheshire Palmyra, IN

Standard Issue Armory is the name of my company and we are registered with, and the Defense Logistic Agency. We manufacture weapon parts and operate daily at a brick and mortar, online store, and seek government contracts. For us to see unclassified technical data we need access to the JCP found here
They will not allow us access until we complete this NiST Assessment found on the SPRS website and create a cyber plan. I have studied and watched videos until my eyes pop out of my head and my brain turns to mush. I am seeking someone that knows this process and can assist me or take my $$$ to get this complete.

The best example I can give you is lets say the FBI spent 100k on ammo with company A and they are seeking more ammo. The solicitation comes out of them requesting 200k rounds of 6.5 creedmore and they want a quote. For me to be competitive in the market and its all blind biding I need to be able to access the unclassified technical data. That data will show what they previously paid per round and things like that. Please help

If you are still looking for information in regards to NIST 800-171, NIST does have a template with some general instructions that would be a great first step if you have not found it already.

I was able to google it as well. These companies want $3500 to do it for me. I was hoping there was a resource within this network that was able to help me complete this.

I did a search on LinkedIn for NIST Cybersecurity Framework Compliance.
Found the profiles of three people.
Presumably they could provide you with advice.

Perhaps you could call the AT&T contact to ask about their service to learn more also.

I don't know how much your business can afford, or how much such an expense could be written off your taxes.

Before spending money, make sure you understand the full scope of what the vendor is offering.
