NIST SP 800-171Hackers are getting smarter every day. Cyber threats and security breaches have progressed to the point where passwords are no longer considered sufficient to protect data on any device on any network. This makes your organization vulnerable to today’s sophisticated phishing attempts and other targeted attacks. That is why the federal government now requires all contractors to comply with NIST SP 800-171 guidelines for multi-factor authentication — or risk losing their contracts! If your organization works with the federal government, setting up two factor authentication is absolutely critical to ensure your business is in compliance. Below is a list of the key requirements of this new security regulation. Read through it carefully, identify your needs, and contact us for an immediate consultation or attend an informative webinar based on your level of urgency. Don’t wait until it’s too late!
