Charting a Course for Research Project NIST 800-171 Compliance

Tuesday, May 02 | 8:00AM–9:00AM | Penrose 2, Lower Level 1
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Concurrent Session
In the absence of a full NIST 800-171–compliant infrastructure, Portland State University embarked on a journey to develop a tailored solution for addressing NIST 800-171 compliance requirements for research projects. In this session, we will map out our solution for navigating these requirements and satisfying research project needs. We will outline our strategy for addressing the need, our relationship with the research arm of the university, and our security plan–based approach using our current IT infrastructure. This is a general interest session.

Outcomes: Gain familiarity with NIST 800-171 guidelines for protecting CUI * Learn about our security strategy leveraging existing IT systems * Learn how we partnered with our research department for addressing NIST 800-171 requirements
