As of December 31, 2017, all federal government contractors are required to comply with NIST-800-171, a new security measure from the National Institute of Standards and Technology. This new publication was created to protect Controlled Unclassified Information, which refers to sensitive information that isn’t regulated by the Federal Government.

At Streamline Circuits, we can help you meet this cybersecurity military certification by providing high-quality, secure printed circuit boards.

NIST-800-171 Explained

Although there is no official certification for NIST-800-171, you do have a duty to the Federal government to ensure that you are complying with this publication. Part of that duty means that you must report (or have reported) any delays in compliance. If you haven’t reported any delays, you need to ensure that your business is compliant with NIST-800-171 so that you are not liable for any data breaches.

NIST-800-171 compliance might be difficult if you don’t already have the processing power required to run the appropriate security protocols. Thankfully, rigid, rigid-flex and flex printed circuit boards from Streamline Circuits are certified to meet NIST’s new standards.

Whether you contract with the Department of Defense, NASA, the General Services Administration, or another government institution, printed circuit boards from Streamline Circuits can help you meet the military cybersecurity certification requirements.
