Keeping our nation’s secrets from the enemy
There is a cyber war going on and enemy nation states are probing your businesses defenses for weaknesses hourly. As a DOD Contractor, your firm is required by law to protect our nation’s information assets entrusted to your care. The scope of the assets is sweeping; from the drawings to bills-of-materials and everything in between.
The DOD has made it clear – protection of these information assets are now your responsibility. Each RFP you submit requires your firm to agree to maintain your business defenses in strict compliance with their cyber specifications. Failure to meet the rules means lost business, and enforcement is provided by the False Claims Act (FCA).
The Cybersecurity requirements are codified in the NIST special publication 800-171. They are sweeping in scope and impact every element of your operation. There are rules about hiring new staff, training your personnel, controlling the flow of information and documenting everything you do in writing.
