DFARS Cybersecurity Compliance Program


 – Are you in the DoD supply chain?

 – Are you working on implementation of the security requirements in NIST SP 800-171, relating to DFARS cybersecurity clause 204.253-7012?

 – Are you working on your Security Assessment, System Security Plan, and Plan of Action?

Contractors and subcontractors can use (System Security Plans) SSPs and plans of actions to document their implementation of the NIST SP 800-171 controls. By using SSPs and plans of action, prime contractors and subcontractors can be compliant with the DFARS cybersecurity clause even if implementation extends after the 12/31/17 deadline.
