Security standards to set you apart.
To win or maintain contracts with the Department of Defence, you will be required to comply with various rules and regulations. Staying on top of compliance updates and establishing efficient systems are a crucial part of your business. We provide IT solutions that streamline your compliance process so you can concentrate on your business operations.
Compliance is confusing and overwhelming, so you require a partner who can help walk you through the process and establish easy-to-follow systems for compliance. One misstep in the process could mean hefty fines or lost revenue, so you can’t afford to cut corners. Whether you have a small in-house IT team or you’ve been trying to manage it alone, partnering with Enegren will give you peace of mind that your procedures will deliver full compliance every time.
What does it mean to be NIST, DFARS, and CMMC compliant?
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was established in 1901 as an agency within the US Department of Commerce. As it applies to compliance, businesses should understand and adhere to the NIST’s Cybersecurity Framework. The framework creates rules and guidelines across all industries for preventing and responding to cyberattacks. The five points in the framework are: identify, detect, protect, respond, and recover. The NIST framework has been translated into other languages and is used by government agencies in other countries.
Regulated by the Department of Defense (DoD), the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) aims to maintain cybersecurity standards put forth by NIST. While it may seem somewhat straightforward at first, DFARS outlines 14 areas of security compliance. Everything from access control, incident response, system protection, and much more are included in DFARS compliance. If you hope to gain or maintain revenue-generating contracts with the DoD, you must comply with DFARS.
Anyone in the defense contract supply chain must follow the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). Much like NIST and DFARS, CMMC seeks to create unifying standards for cybersecurity across the federal government’s defense supply network, all the way down to subcontractors. CMMC was introduced to reassure the DoD that companies within the supply chain can protect Federal Contract Information (FCI) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) across all of their systems.
