This EDUCAUSE community group is sponsored by the Higher Education Information Security Council. The purpose of this group provides a forum to discuss NIST 800-171 compliance. Participants are encouraged to collaborate and share effective practices and resources that help higher education institutions prepare for and comply with the NIST 800-171 standard as it relates to Federal Student Aid (FSA), CMMC, DFARS, NIH, and NSF activities.  As other federal government regulatory items for cybersecurity are announced, they are discussed as appropriate.

The HEISC 800-171 Compliance community group meets the third Tuesday of each month 10:30-11:30 ET. The group’s co-chairs will send an email reminder to the CG list with call-in details and a request for agenda items prior to each monthly meeting. Please note that CG members are responsible for adding these monthly meetings to their calendars.
