Monitor, control, and protect communications at the external boundaries and key internal boundaries of organizational systems

In today's rapidly evolving cybersecurity landscape, ensuring the protection of sensitive information is more critical than ever. That's why we're here with another compliance tip to help you navigate the complexities of DFARS, NIST SP 800-171, and CMMC 2.0 requirements.

One of the key controls under CMMC 2.0 is Control SC.L1-3.13.1, which focuses on monitoring, controlling, and protecting communications transmitted or received by organizational systems. This control emphasizes the importance of safeguarding your communications at both external boundaries and key internal boundaries of your systems.

Why is this control crucial? By effectively monitoring and controlling communications, you can prevent unauthorized access to sensitive information, mitigate the risk of data breaches, and ensure compliance with regulatory standards. Whether it's protecting data in transit or securing internal communications within your organization, Control SC.L1-3.13.1 plays a vital role in bolstering your cybersecurity posture.

To help you understand and implement Control SC.L1-3.13.1, we've created a comprehensive video lesson available on our YouTube channel. In this video, we break down the key concepts of the control and provide practical insights to help you ensure compliance with CMMC requirements.
