The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-171, Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Systems and Organizations, outlines security standards for the protection of sensitive information. The publication “provides recommended security requirements for protecting the confidentiality of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) when the information is resident in nonfederal systems and organizations.”
A working group from the EDUCAUSE Higher Education Information Security Council (HEISC) 800-171 Compliance Community Group has published a toolkit to help higher education institutions cope with some of the challenges the publication poses.
In this conversation, CNI Executive Director Clifford Lynch and Duke University’s Jay Gallman (a toolkit author) discuss the implications of NIST SP-800 for higher education, how the toolkit was developed, who has contributed to it, and how institutions can best make use of it in their compliance efforts.
