eBook: Strategies for Meeting DFARS and NIST SP 800-171 requirements with FedRAMP Accredited AWS GovCloud

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.


Implementing Secure DevOps (SecDevOps) on Public Cloud Platforms

Businesses are looking to accelerate the delivery of production quality software with fewer defects, and better security. Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) also known as DevOps is a rapidly maturing practice for reducing the time and effort it takes to test and deploy code into production. The rapid automation of the integration and deployment activities is common especially on cloud-based platforms. Adding security testing into the DevOps pipeline can help address the needs of regulated, compliance and public sector focused organizations. This white paper describes the use of open source technologies and commercial packages to design and deploy a Secure DevOps pipeline. Tools such as Yasca, SonarQube, and OpenSCAP amongst others when integrated with vulnerability scanners such as Tenable Nessus, HP Fortify and others provide a robust SecDevOps implementation.
