This has been a long-awaited update for NIST SP 800-171. In the past few months, there has been a lot of concern over how the new revision will impact current contracts.  Current contracts with the DFARS 252.204-7012 clause will only need to meet NIST SP 800-171 Rev. 2 until the memorandum published by the Office of The Under Secretary of Defense is rescinded.  For those looking at CMMC 2.0 compliance, we expect that there will be no changes any time soon to the assessment requirements. 

In the coming weeks, look for a new blog post where we review the changes in NIST SP 800-171 and how they could potentially impact your compliance in the future.
