This blog post is a continuation of The CMMC Basics where we covered what the government wants you to protect, the interim rule, Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) levels, and how to get started. In this blog we start the journey toward meeting compliance with CMMC. We begin with first meeting compliance with NIST SP 800-171 R2, the latest self-assessment and self-attestation standard. The United States government is challenged with securing the supply chain to reduce theft of intellectual property, collection of intelligence by foreign adversaries, and introduction of counterfeit products. The Department of Defense (DoD) must assure that the mission of the warfighter is not compromised, furthermore the research and development, ideas and product specification are not stolen. As we become more of an interconnected world, this will be more challenging, so you must take steps to assure that you are keeping your information safe as a Defense Industrial Base (DIB) vendor. If you are among the over 300,000 hardworking vendors supporting the DoD — be proud and be ready to do your part in helping America’s continued prosperity.

Public and private entities must secure systems, and networks from adversaries with malicious purpose. In this effort to secure Federal networks, one of the areas of focus for the government is the Federal Supply Chain and strengthening the security of United States Government contracting systems. The global nature of the Internet allows all countries to participate in communication, commerce, and free exchange of ideas – allowing for true prosperity. Access to something as powerful as the Internet presents opportunities for outside nations to conduct espionage, steal intellectual properties, cybercrimes, and remotely attack critical infrastructure.

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) has been a leading option in file transfers for a long time. However, looking at the complexity of data security compliance standards and the capabilities of data hackers, a stronger and more secure solution can be required.

The aerospace industry has grown exponentially in recent memory. The transport of goods and services has become a major player in the global economy. But, with that growth has come increased regulation. In particular, regulations in data and file sharing led to the creation of ITAR, International Traffic in Arms Regulations.
