FLANK provides comprehensive DFARS NIST 800-171 compliance services to federal contractors throughout the greater Washington D.C. metropolitan area, including Baltimore, Northern Virginia, and other surrounding locations.

The Department of Defense has begun a huge push for ensuring that federal contractors are in compliance with the new DFARS mandates; provisions that require implementation of NIST SP 800-171, Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Information Systems and Organizations. Many contractors are understandably overwhelmed when it comes to DFARS compliance – specifically – what systems are actually in scope and what steps are necessary for implementation of NIST SP 800-171?

DFARS NIST 800 -71 Compliance from Northern Virginia’s Federal Compliance Experts

Are you a federal contractor – prime or sub – located in the Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia, or Baltimore area in need of much-needed guidance and support services regarding DFARS compliance in accordance with the NIST SP 800-171 provisions? If so, then you’ll need to be aware of the following subject matter, best practices – and services offered by FLANK – for gaining a true understanding of DFARS 252.204-7012 compliance:
Understand the Origins of DFARS 252.204-7012

While FISMA compliance – the Federal Information Security Management Act – was signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2002, federal contractors were still not being held to the truest of standards and measures for information security compliance. But in a post 9/11 and Edward Snowden world, that’s all changed, especially with DoD contractors. The Pentagon is serious about information security, so if you’re offering any type of service to the DoD – or other federal agencies – you’ll start seeing strict requirements for DFARS 252.204-7012 compliance, no question about it. FLANK offers comprehensive federal compliance services & policy and procedures writing services, so contact us today to learn more.

FISMA & NIST SP 800-53 and SP 800-171 Information Security Policies and Procedures

FLANK offers industry leading FISMA and NIST SP 800-53 and NIST SP 800-171 information security policies and procedures packets, along with custom writing services. In today’s growing world of national security and cybersecurity threats, the federal government has started to aggressively enforce the FISMA mandates signed into law in 2002 (then amended in 2014).

While federal agencies have been working hard on FISMA compliance since 2002, the private sector is now the focus, with contractors being required to adhere to the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA) and the Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014 (FISMA).

FISMA, like many of today’s security, governance, and compliance mandates, requires a vast amount of documentation to be in place – specifically – information security policies and procedures covering essential I.T. domains. From change management to incident response, data backup – and much more – the Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014 is all about documentation.

Offering FISMA | NIST SP 800-53 Policy Packets

Spending hundreds of internal hours – and ultimately, thousands of operational dollars – is not the preferred method for FISMA compliance. What you need are experts who can hit the ground running, developing all necessary documentation from easy-to-use and customize templates from FLANK. It’s important to note that the FISMA compliance framework is largely driven and established by the control criteria within (as of this writing in December, 2017), NIST SP 800-53, Revision 4, “Security and Privacy Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations”.

Not only does FLANK have the resources and manpower for helping businesses in North America become FISMA compliant, we also provide industry leading policies, procedures, forms, checklists – and more – that map directly to the current NIST SP 800-53 security control families and other relevant criteria.
