Reduce Risk and Secure Your Government Contracts
If you’re in the Department of Defense (DoD) supply chain, you may be subject to Defense Acquisition Regulations System (DFARS) / NIST SP 800-171 requirements. DFARS compliance is required of any companies that, “Process, store or transmit Controlled Unclassified Information.” Failure to comply can cause the termination of your DoD contracts.
Polaris MEP can help you determine whether you need to comply with DFARS requirements and how best to achieve compliance. This includes completion of your Security Assessment as well as creation and implementation of your System Security Plan and Plan of Action.
According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the manufacturing industry is the second most targeted industry based on the number of reported cyber attacks.

Our policy templates can help provide you with a starting point for addressing the requirements of NIST SP 800-171 — AND can be customized to your systems and needs.
Once policies have been established, we provide cybersecurity awareness training for your employees.
