Cyber security attacks continue to make headlines as unscrupulous parties attack and obtain sensitive personal and technical data and resources. Companies like GP:50 that work with Aerospace & Defense contracts are high on the list of targets for such devious attacks. To combat these threats, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) provided NIST Special Publication 800-171. This standard details cyber security requirements for protecting the confidentiality of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) as well as IT assets for companies operating within the USA. Being compliant to this standard is required by many Aerospace and Defense customers. With a commitment to quality, compliance and customer satisfaction, GP:50 is pleased to add NIST 800-171 to our list of aerospace and defense-related standards including ISO 9001, ITAR and committed to AS9100 before year end.
