NIST SP 800-171 Compliance

Following guidance from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), TestAmerica has implemented procedures to protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) generated by our analytical facilities.  The guidance, Special Publication (SP) 800-171, outlines recommended security requirements to be implemented by nonfederal contractors to protect the confidentiality of CUI.

In support of NIST SP 800-171, TestAmerica has upgraded many features and processes to improve data security, including:

  • Delivery of data to clients, including those working with the Department of Defense, via a secured data portal, TotalAccess®. TotalAccess offers clients improved security over traditional, non-encrypted email messages, as well as functionality for customizable EDD creation, data trending and result comparison to state and federal regulatory limits.
  • Multi-factor authentication to protect network assets and verify users.
  • Increased mobile device security management to prevent unauthorized access to internal servers and data.

Implementation of these, and various other internal initiatives, will continue to ensure that TestAmerica remains the nation’s leading provider of legally defensible, high quality and secure data.   For additional information on NIST SP 800-171 requirements, please visit the NIST Computer Security Resource Center.
