What Is DFARS?

The Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement is a set of cybersecurity requirements mandated by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) for contractors and subcontractors that handle sensitive information and provide goods or services to the DoD. The two primary goals of DFARS compliance are to provide adequate security for sensitive information and rapidly report cyber incidents to the DoD. While the two goals may sound easy, there are 14 groups of security requirements that have to be met. Don’t go it alone: Get an expert on your side.

Ensure DFARS Compliance

The regulatory phrase “adequate security” can cover a lot more than you’d initially think. Here are the 14 areas your company must cover to meet NIST SP 800-171 guidelines:

  • Access control
  • Awareness and training
  • Audit and accountability
  • Configuration management
  • Identification and authentication
  • Incident response
  • Maintenance
  • Media protection
  • Personnel security
  • Physical protection
  • Risk assessment
  • Security assessment
  • System and communications protection
  • System and information integrity

It may sound like a daunting task, but fortunately for you, the DoD allows partnerships with security-centric third-party managed service providers, saving you from massive capital investments in compliance.

Don’t Risk Noncompliance

Companies that aren’t compliant with DFARS can face a stop-work order. This means that their work on behalf of the DoD will be suspended until they implement suitable security measures to protect controlled unclassified information (CUI). The Department of Defense may invoke financial penalties, including seeking damages for breach of contract and false claims.

Worst-case scenario? DoD contractors could find that their contracts with the Department of Defense are terminated. They could even face suspension or debarment from ever working with the Department of Defense again.

The bottom line? Not taking advantage of expert compliance  service could cost you in the long run.
