Achieve and maintain compliance with E-N Computers
With the annual increase of cyber threats that affect both personal and business lives, the U.S. government issued a Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to safeguard the unclassified data of the Federal Department of Defense (DoD). The DFARS covers the protection of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) as a requirement for all contractors doing business with the DoD. The rules are comprised of stringent standards for cybersecurity.
E-N Computers is a DFARS compliance expert who can help contractors like you be well-equipped with the knowledge and tools to meet compliance as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.
Minimum requirements of DFARS
NIST-800 full compliance must be obtained
In any cyber threat event, the contractor must report to the DoD within 72 hours
All non-compliant aspects must be reported to the DoD within 30 days of post-contract award
Compliance must extend to all suppliers and subcontracts storing and/or processing CUI
After all the cybersecurity measures are in place, the contractor must continuously monitor, assess, improve, and optimize its current cybersecurity efforts in order to stay compliant. Failure to do so can warrant the contractor huge fines, business closure and worse, possible imprisonment.
Along with the advancement of technology, threats of cyberattacks are escalating every day. Thus, the Federal Government puts higher importance on addressing cybersecurity threats through DFARS and NIST regulations, so all contractors involved are held to consistent standards.
