Prohibit remote activation of collaborative computing devices and provide indication of devices in use to users present at the device

Staying compliant with DFARS, NIST SP 800-171, and CMMC standards is critical for protecting sensitive information and maintaining your competitive edge in the defense sector. Today, we want to highlight an essential aspect of CMMC 2.0: Control SC.L2-3.13.12.

CMMC 2.0 Compliance Tip: Control SC.L2-3.13.12

Control SC.L2-3.13.12 mandates the prohibition of remote activation of collaborative computing devices and requires providing an indication of devices in use to users present at the device. This control is vital for ensuring the security and integrity of your collaborative environments.

Why is this important?

Enhances Device Security

Preventing the remote activation of collaborative computing devices helps ensure that unauthorized users cannot gain control over these devices, protecting sensitive discussions and data from being compromised.

User Awareness

Providing a clear indication when devices are in use helps users present at the device to be aware of ongoing sessions, reducing the risk of unintentional information exposure and enhancing overall situational awareness.

Supports Compliance

Adhering to this control is necessary for meeting CMMC 2.0 requirements, aligning your practices with DFARS and NIST SP 800-171 standards, and demonstrating your commitment to cybersecurity.
