NIST SP 800-171 Gap Analysis 

Cerberus Sentinel’s NIST SP 800-171 gap analysis is an in-depth review of your organization’s cybersecurity landscape and help determine if your organization is ready to obtain CMMC, which will be required of all DoD Contractors by 2026

Using NIST SP 800-171 to Prepare for CMMC 2.0

Level 1 includes 17 basic security requirements based on the NIST 800-171.  Although the directive requires only a self-assessment, Cerberus can assist with evaluating level 1 compliance via a gap analysis.

Level 2 of the CMMC 2.0 includes all the 110 requirements from NIST 800-171, verbatim. So a gap analysis is a great starting point to determine if your organization meets these 110 required practices.
