The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) was a big announcement for the defense industry, and contractors for the Department of Defense who manage controlled unclassified information need to start preparing for major changes that will come as part of this process.
Cybersecurity is a widespread concern, the aerospace industry being no exception. In fact, in 2016 only 40% of aerospace and defense companies said they have a comprehensive set of security policies in place. That’s a surprisingly low number when you consider the major ramifications that could result from a data security breach. As cybersecurity threats grow more common and more sophisticated, it’s vital that aerospace and defense companies understand the government recommendations in place related to data security and how to comply with those recommendations.

The aerospace industry is a particularly alluring target for cybersecurity hackers, which also means that those working in the industry need to be aware of possible threats. Here are four of the biggest and most common cybersecurity challenges faced by the aerospace industry.
The FedRAMP Marketplace is a helpful resource for federal agencies looking for FedRAMP compliant cloud vendors, products, agencies, assessors, and more. Choosing the best vendors to work with can be a time consuming and stressful process, especially when you don’t know where to begin your search. However, the FedRAMP Marketplace can drastically shorten the length of your search.
When you think of user access security, you might think of traditional security measures, like submitting your username and password. While these basic security measures may have protected you in the past, they’re not quite strong enough to withstand advanced attacks from today’s hackers. Thus, many organizations are turning to SSH-key authentication to provide a greater level of security for SFTP solutions compared to traditional password measures. In this article, we’ll look at what SSH-Key Authentication entails, and how this security measure protects your data better than other options.
Working with a FedRAMP Authorized cloud service provider (CSP) is required for federal government agencies. Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) was designed to address security vulnerabilities that can arise when working with cloud vendors. As with any business decision, there are benefits and drawbacks that come with working with a FedRAMP Authorized CSP. There are two primary areas in which you’ll benefit and face challenges: FedRAMP cost and time. Let’s look at these two areas of working with a FedRAMP Authorized CSP.
Many cloud service providers strive to be FedRAMP compliant and earn their FedRAMP authorization. Gaining FedRAMP authorization means that federal government agencies have permission to work with a specific cloud service provider. This provider has demonstrated that they can meet FedRAMP requirements to keep sensitive data protected, making them a suitable service provider for government organizations. Let’s look at the three stages of FedRAMP compliance and learn more about the process cloud service providers go through to be FedRAMP compliant. We’ll also take a closer look at the benefits of working with cloud service providers who have been through this process and received their FedRAMP authorization.
If your organization deals with sensitive healthcare data, you’re well aware of the importance of HIPAA compliance. While compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 may be time-consuming or complicated, it is definitely essential, regardless of the challenges that come with your compliance efforts.
Security breaches and cybersecurity attacks happen every day, making it imperative that organizations have the proper security controls in place. In addition to having your own security measures established and tested, you also need to ensure that every service provider you work with is up to your standards, especially a cloud service provider (CSP).
No longer just a novel approach to office technology, BYOD (bring your own device) policies have become common practice in today’s workplaces. It’s easy to see why as we grow more dependent on smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other devices by the day.
