DFARS 252.204-7012 (Implementing NIST 800-171): Where we are now

DFARS 252.204-7012 (Implementing NIST 800-171) compliance is a hot, albeit confusing and vague, issue for defense contractors, especially with the recent extensions and updates the government has made to the ruling. To recap what we know so far:

  1. If you’re a Defense Contractor, THIS APPLIES TO YOU!
  2. Compliance Deadline: December 2017
  3. Average time to obtain complaince: 12 Months

The road-map to compliance involves a LOT of data capture. Much of the compliance effort involves documenting Policies and Procedures and there are nearly 200 NIST controls that need to be documented. Needless to say, this is a MAJOR undertaking even for a large organization with adequate staffing. For a smaller sub-contractor, it is an extremely costly and labor-intensive effort — many smaller sub-contractors simply do not have the resources for this. Techni-Core has developed a full and very mature set of templates for this very purpose – over 400 pages of highly detailed and professional templates that will save your company MONEY and countless man-hours. We offer these templates in packages to best suite your needs – Silver, Gold and Platinum.

These have been developed by our DFARS specialist team and map to all the latest controls and requirements. Each set is customized for your organization and you get the full writeable version that permits you to customize them to suit your company’s needs.
