DFARS and NIST 800-171 Compliance Mandate

Government contractors who own or operate information systems that process, store, or transmit federal controlled unclassified information have until the end of 2017 to meet DFARS compliance rules.  Are you compliant?  Lynx Technology Partners can help you put together a plan to ensure your DFARS and NIST 800-171 compliance as well as an ongoing strategy to ensure the proper overall risk posture.

Time is Running Out

DFARS requires government contractors to implement specific controls as specified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-171.  These procedural controls are designed to protect sensitive information and to facilitate the rapid reporting of cyber incidents. But this is something you already know. You also know that your organization has a lot riding on your DFARS / NIST 800-171 compliance. Time is rapidly running out for you to meet the end of year mandate.  Non-compliance can seriously impact your ability to secure and execute your business with the federal government.  Additionally, valuable information that is related to research and development will be discontinued.  This impacts your ability to innovate and will effect your bottom line.
