CNC machining and engineering service provider, Graham Research, Inc. Recently achieved NIST SP 800-171 compliance

In preparation for the Department of Defense’s 2025 NIST SP 800-171 requirement, Graham Research has invested time and capital in updated cybersecurity measures

PLYMOUTH, MN, USA, April 6, 2022 / — Routinely producing complex parts and components used in defense equipment, aerospace equipment, medical devices and other commercial products, Graham Research dedicates part of its business to ensure they comply with all quality certifications and trade accreditations within their target industries. The recent NIST SP 800-171 compliance requirement is a set of cybersecurity policies and practices defined by the Department of Defense (DOD) – designed to protect controlled and unclassified information in non-federal systems and organizations. A recognized name in defense manufacturing, Graham Research recently obtained NIST SP 800-171 compliance as a prerequisite for all new and renewed contracts with the DOD.

This new compliance requires that all defense manufacturing partners currently under contract with the DOD obtain NIST SP 800-171 cybersecurity clearance by 2025. In addition, newly proposed projects with the DOD must immediately meet this compliance before completing any purchase order. Along with the company’s current growth goals, Graham Research began 2022 by immediately investing in new processes and procedures required under NIST cybersecurity clearance. These new investments will help securely access, share and store controlled, unclassified information, ensuring that all critical infrastructure and information is protected.

Along with their recent achievement of NIST SP 800-171 compliance, Graham Research also maintains ISO 9001:2015, ISO 13485:2016, and AS9100:2016 certifications, and is FDA, SAM, and ITAR registered. Their efforts to achieve strict quality and safety standards help ensure that they can reliably manufacture highly complex components for multiple industrial partners. Multiple certifications, combined with an experienced in-house team, have made them a trusted CNC machining partner for over 70 years.
