As a contractor or sub-contractor to government agencies and organizations, due to Executive Order 13556 you must now provide documentation and evidence as to how you are protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) in order to show DFARS compliance.
This proof comes in the form of a security assessment based on National Institute of Standards Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-171, Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Non-federal Information Systems and Organizations. Contractors affected by this mandate must be assessed and then implement security measures in order to continue to do business with governmental agencies and organizations after December 2017.
This means you must prove compliance by December 2017, or you can lose government contracts.
