DFARS 252.204-7012 Compliance Consulting

Nearly 100% of dod contracts require both primes and their subcontractors to comply with both nist sp 800-171 and dfars compliance

If your company provides products or services being sold to the Department of Defense (DoD) you are required to comply with the minimum cybersecurity standards set by DFARS.

DFARS Requirements go beyond what is required by the NIST SP 800-171 standard. If you are doing business with the Department of Defense it is critical to understand what DFARS clauses have been included in your contract and what you must do to comply so you are not subject to penalties that can include losing your contract and being black listed by the DoD.

Fun Facts About Common DFARS Requirements That Likely Affect You:

  • If you have a DFARS 252.204-7012 requirement regular commercial versions of Microsoft Office 365 are not an allowable communication method and do not meet FedRAMP requirements.
  • You have 72 hours to report a cyber incident to the DoD. Failure to do so following proper procedure is a violation of DFARS rules and you may be subject to penalty and/or losing your contract.
  • Under DFARS rules many cloud solutions are not allowed and do not meet the requirements.
  • Upon request by the DoD, the Contractor shall provide DoD with access to additional information or equipment that is necessary to conduct a forensic analysis. This means you must be able to allow the DoD to access your systems if they request it in order for them to conduct their own investigation of a cyber incident. 
  • Depending upon what DFARS requirements are in your contract you may be required to make sure all of your subcontractors are also compliant (Flow Down). Failure to ensure the transfer of information to a compliant sub-contractor can be grounds for penalty or contract loss.
