Ready to kick off your NIST 800-171 assessment?
Great! Let’s get this thing off the ground.
You’ll be presented with a questionnaire regarding your organization when logging in for the first time. Your answers will be used to initialize your assessment. Don’t worry – everything you set here can be changed later.
- Organization Name: The name of your business.
- Environment Name: The way you refer to the environment you’ll be assessing. This can be an office name, an application name or anything in between.
- Operational Status: Is the environment being built out, or is it fully operational?
- Assessment Length: How much time have you allocated for the assessment? A NIST 800-171 assessment isn’t exactly an overnight process. You should set a realistic goal and make adjustments as needed as you progress through the assessment.
Click Create Assessment and CMP will take you to your new Dashboard.
