Project Goals and Supporting Resources
Goal 1: Build a Community
The Regulated Research Community of Practice (RRCoP) builds a network of people able to help each other in implementing an affordable but effective cybersecurity and compliance program at academic institutions.
Goal 2: Collect and Share Resources
Establish a leadership training and development program accelerating availability of distributed university resources.
Goal 4: Manage Change
The Department of Defense modified the DFARS clause to mandate that NIST 800-171 be followed for data classified and marked as CUI in 2017. The next evolution of this program, CMMC, has already undergone significant changes now called CMMC 2.0. Other agencies, for example, Department of Education, have indicated that they are considering following a similar path to safeguard data.
