What is DoD Compliance?Get Compliant
If you’re a contractor—prime or sub-prime—and you’ve been hired to do a job for the Department of Defense (DoD), you’ll first need to understand what DoD compliance is. Put simply, DoD compliance means meeting the information security standards set by the DoD for their contractor partners.
This includes everything from ensuring that your company meets the standards set in place by the DoD, such as DFARS 252.204-7012, -7019, -7020, and NIST 800-171, and making sure you are prepared for the future of DoD compliance with Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) version 2, once adopted.
Navigating the world of DoD compliance can be a serious challenge, but having the right support can be the difference between a successful mission and a lost opportunity.
Remaining DoD Compliant on Your Own Isn’t Easy
Adherence to DoD compliance can be fraught with challenges for contractors preparing for government contracts, and without the right guidance, it can be difficult to remain on top of them:
- Understanding the Requirements: DoD compliance requirements, through DFARS 252.204-7012/NIST 800-171, are complex. They often require a significant amount of interpretation, preparation, and testing, so contractors need plenty of time to evaluate the compliance objectives thoroughly, to ensure they stay up-to-speed with what is required of them.
- Implementing Protective Measures: DoD contracts often involve handling sensitive data that may involve Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) or Federal Contract Information (FCI). Which means contractors must ensure they implement robust security measures to prevent data compromises and maintain the integrity of the information throughout the contract.
- Maintaining Physical Security: Physical security at the project site is equally crucial—this involves ensuring the safety of project materials, equipment, and personnel.
- Staying Updated with Changes: Compliance rules can change based on new laws, policies, or threats. Staying updated with these changes is a task unto itself, but it’s crucial for maintaining compliance. Continued compliance is crucial because changes are constantly being made and you can’t afford to have a gap in what’s needed to be implemented for the safety of your company and those that you’re working with.
