RESOURCE FOR YOUR COMPANY TODAY!
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) issued NIST SP 800-171 which outlines a set of security standards for any company that works with controlled unclassified information (CUI) from government agencies.
Applying NIST SP 800-171 controls helps to secure data and prevent unauthorized access to sensitive material.
The deadline for compliance with these standards has already passed (December 2017), but still not all companies have applied the necessary resources to ensure their systems and processes are NIST compliant.
GBS has made a significant investment in applying the NIST SP 800-171 standards within our organization. It is our priority to also provide our customers with secure solutions for their projects and data.
GBS especially recognizes the crucial responsibility that cable owners must maintain myriad records for their cable system to assure that they are operated, administered, maintained, and repaired using the most current and secure information.
Document management (DM) is the systematic capture, control, storage and retrieval of documents. The DM process can be incredibly time consuming and costly, and for this reason, it is too often ignored.
While NIST SP 800-171 adds additional layers of needed security to a company’s DM process, it also is costly and time-consuming to implement and operate.
GBS has embraced the new regulations in its NIST 800-171 compliant, cloud-based, secure Submarine Cable Document Management System (SCDMS).
SCMDS is also monitored by an independent, professional Security Operations Center (SOC). This 24/7 service continuously monitors performance, applies security patch updates for servers, and provides rapid incident response and notification.
