The United States of America is increasing attention on cybersecurity to ensure the prosperity of the American people. 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.
AMRDEC SAFE was the leading solution in the government file-sharing space for a long time. However, given the increasing demands of security and file capacity, AMRDEC was replaced with a new solution called DoD SAFE
Are you trying to select a new file sharing solution, but you have a few questions first? Explore these common questions about file sharing solutions and find out their answers.
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.
Aerospace cybersecurity is a growing topic in our industry – and not for the right reasons. With a lack of clear and required regulations, as well as an abundance of data and security risks, aerospace is quickly becoming one of the biggest targets for cybersecurity attacks in the world.
Imagine you are the pilot of a plane, carrying delicate cargo – maybe the most important cargo: human passengers. Suddenly, your plane’s systems are infiltrated by a hacker with nefarious motives and you no longer have GPS or communication connection. Panic begins to set in as you struggle to maintain the safety and security of the aircraft.
At FTP Today, we get asked a lot about aerospace cybersecurity. From who regulates aerospace to how to be compliant in the industry, it is critical to understand how the industry works.
DFARS, or the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement, was launched back in 2016 as a government effort to protect from cybersecurity attacks. For DoD contractors, this meant increased regulations and assessments for those working with controlled information.
As a DoD contractor, you are probably wondering how to prepare for the cybersecurity maturity model certification. Understanding the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) compliance process will help your business maintain security and continue to earn government contracts.
If you are a DoD contractor, this summer you’ll be required to align with new CMMC regulations. With the new regulations coming with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification, many DoD contractors are facing confusion and even frustration at the prospect of integrating a whole new cybersecurity model into their compliance efforts. A big question many in the industry have is how the new CMMC differs from other major regulations in the industry, especially those outlined in NIST publications.
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification is a relatively new security framework created to help government contractors standardize security controls used to protect CUI (controlled unclassified information). The Department of Defense plans to migrate to this new level-based certification model starting in June 2020. The CMMC framework is designed to indicate the maturity of a company’s cybersecurity efforts. The more mature your security controls are, the higher the level you will obtain. The ability to handle sensitive data will be dependent on your certification level. As a provider of government compliant data sharing software solutions, FTP Today plans to study these new regulations to ensure we get the correct certification level so we can provide our users with compliant and up-to-date solutions.
