The NIST 800-171 Compliance Criteria (NCC) was originally developed for a large, multinational defense contractor. This product is essentially a "consultant in a box" since it is a spreadsheet that contains the advice that you would get from hiring a dedicate cybersecurity consultant to write for you. The NIST 800-171 Compliance Criteria (NCC) is meant to advance your organization to a point where you understand the real-world meaning of NIST 800-171 requirements and can provide evidence of your compliance.
From surveying cybersecurity professionals, we created the following chart to provide a comparison of options for companies needing security program documentation:
As you can see, when you factor in internal staff time to perform reviews and refinements with key stakeholders, purchasing a NCC from ComplianceForge is approximately 23% ($5,5000+ savings) of the cost as compared to writing your own documentation and 9% ($16,000+ savings) of the cost as compared to hiring a consultant to write it for you!
