DFARS & CMMC Compliance

New DFARS guidance requires all DoD contractors to complete a NIST 800-171 cybersecurity assessment for full DFARS compliance. Don’t jeopardize current or future DoD work by failing to implement the required security controls! Use our free web-based calculator to determine if your company is required to comply with DFARS Section 252.204-7012.

DFARS Webinar

Aerstone hosts a monthly free webinar series that walks you through the steps to achieving full DFARS compliance. All DoD contractors and their subcontractors are required to comply with the new DFARS cybersecurity regulations, including a NIST 800-171 compliance audit.

DFARS Statute

The Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) contains a new clause, “Safeguarding Covered Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting” (Section 252.204-7012), which requires all DoD prime contractors and subcontractors to implement “adequate security” based on a set of security controls referenced in NIST SP 800-171, and to conduct cyber incident analysis and reporting. The wording of the clause is sufficiently broad as to require compliance by virtually any company doing business with the DoD, across any industry (whether technical or non-technical).

Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)

The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, & Sustainment (OUSD(A&S)) developed the CMMC program to build upon 2017 DFARS requirements (Clause 252.204-7012) protecting Covered Unclassified Information (CUI) to provide various maturity levels accommodating small to large DoD contractors within the Defense Industrial Base (DIB).  The new certification program also removes the ability for vendors within the supply chain to self-certify and will now require audits and accreditation from a third-party organization.  Requirements for CMMC maturity levels will appear in RFIs starting in June 2020, and in RFPs in Fall 2020.

This new model supports five (5) maturity levels ranging from basic cybersecurity (small business) to highly advanced cybersecurity practices. 


Addressing Requirements

Aerstone performs CMMC Readiness Assessments for DoD customers looking to prepare themselves for certification. Our Readiness Assessment provide clients with insight into their organization’s security posture as compared to the CMMC requirements at one of the five levels.  Clients walk away with a CMMC Security Control Matrix and Readiness Assessment Report to be used in future compliance audits. Aerstone also performs full DFARS controls assessments for clients looking to satisfy that requirement. 

Achieving Compliance

Auditors understandably prefer assessment results produced by someone other than the system owners and implementers. Let Aerstone help your organization achieve compliance.
