A new compliance mandate has been introduced, and organizations in the federal and government space are under the wire for meeting requirements. Any organization or contractor that holds or processes unclassified Department of Defense (DoD) data must ensure that they comply with the new NIST Special Publication 800-171 mandate, otherwise known as DFARS (Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement) by December 31, 2017. CloudCheckr provides the tools and best practice checks to help support DFARS compliance.
As with other compliance mandates, DFARS necessitates ongoing attention. It is important to remember to put controls in place for current systems and data, while taking into consideration the need to cover new systems and data as they are created.
