DOD prime contractors and sub-contractors must demonstrate compliance with NIST SP 800-171 based on DFARS Clause 252.204-7012 starting Jan 01, 2018. DFARS requires that contractors implement NIST SP 800-171 to protect systems and networks that process, store, or transmit “covered defense information”. Small businesses, manufacturers, construction and engineering services providers must consider implementing compliant solutions that include documentation including a System Security Plan (SSP), Plan of Actions & Milestones (POA&M) and a IT Contingency Plan (ITCP). Leveraging FedRAMP and DOD accredited cloud platforms like the AWS GovCloud can help greatly accelerate the compliance process and reduce costs. Our FREE eBook provides hands-on strategies for compliance with DFARS 252.204-7012.
