How We Help


Analyzing your security needs

Self-assessment of your systems’ security against the NIST SP 800-171 controls can be time consuming and challenging. We can facilitate your process, making everything simple and straightforward.


Creating key documentation

Creation of your System Security Plan and Plan of Action is often laborious, but with the help of Polaris MEP’s DFARS specialists, we can make the development of your key documentation painless and efficient.


Finding the right resources and guidance

Don’t go it alone when it comes to professional technical assessments and implementation.  Arm yourself with the right resources to avoid having to reinvent the wheel.


Setting the standards

Our policy templates can help provide you with a starting point for addressing the requirements of NIST SP 800-171. We can also customize these to suit your systems and needs.


Developing skills to protect your organization

Once policies have been established, we can also help you with training your employees in cybersecurity awareness.

Compliance Doesn't Have to Be Hard

  • Efficient and accurate self-assessments
  • Comprehensive and protective System Security Plans
  • Clear Plans of Action that close the compliance gap

Cybersecurity breaches aren’t just for large businesses. No business is too small to be hacked. Over 70% of reported breaches actually affected businesses with 100 employees or less. You might be surprised to learn that represents over 90% of Rhode Island manufacturers!
