Use TrustCloud to accelerate NIST 800-171 readiness and self-attest as it comes with built-in controls, policies, evidence collection automation workflows, templates, and other features such as a risk register and employee attestation workflows to help any organization get ready for a successful NIST 800-171 audit process.

Using the TrustOps application in TrustCloud, an organization can quickly get all the needed NIST CSF controls from the TrustCloud Common Controls Framework (TCCCF) catalog (built to streamline compliance) by meeting a control requirement once and complying with many other compliance standards and regulations. Every policy in TrustCloud is automatically mapped to controls, and every control has tests associated with them to gather evidence that proves control adherence.


Controls from the TCCCF include 200+ controls and are currently aligned with SOC 2,  HIPAA, ISO 27001, ISO 9001, GDPR, CCPA, ISO 27701, CMMC L1 and L2, NIST Cybersecurity, NIST 800-171, NIST 800-53.

Each control comes with an evidence description to help provide guidance to prove that the control is working, and 80% of the TJCCF controls are automated! The automation helps streamline the collection exercise and helps any organization get ready faster!


Automation in TrustCloud helps automate 60% to 75% of your NIST 800-171 evidence collection needs. Therefore, you can get ready for a NIST 800-171 self-attestation in weeks instead of months or years.

In addition to control automation, policies, and evidence collection, TrustCloud also helps you automate other compliance requirements, such as managing a risk register and having employees attest to your organization’s security and corporate policies.

A self-attestation report can be generated directly from Trust Ops to demonstrate compliance with NIST-800-171.

Your TrustCloud team is composed of compliance experts who are readily available to address any questions or help you prepare for your audit.
