Working With IT Departments

Even the most proactive information technology departments may have vulnerabilities or areas where security can be improved. DGC’s professionals are trusted by clients, work with sensitive data, and understand the importance of having internal controls tailored to your organization. We take the time to ask the critical questions and understand your business.

Have you identified all types of sensitive data in your organization and where it’s stored? Do you have a well-defined plan of action in the event of a breach? Are you in compliance with all federal and state regulations?

 

We will review your policies, interview key members of your team, and deliver recommendations. These are just the first steps a business needs to take in order to properly protect itself. By partnering with DGC’s Cyber and Information Security team, you can implement a secure framework, allowing you to operate your business with confidence.

It’s your organization’s responsibility to uphold the three tenets of information security:

  • Confidentiality – Data is kept private
  • Integrity – Data can be trusted
  • ​Availability – Data can be accessed when needed

Defense & Aerospace

If you are doing business with the Department of Defense, it is likely you are subject to a series of cybersecurity requirements through either Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 52.204-21 or Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 252.204-7012.

FAR mandates 15 cybersecurity requirements that defense contractors must have in place to meet the terms of their contract. DFARS goes much further than its FAR counterpart. There are 110 requirements with an incident response capability, and the clause is triggered when the contractor collects, develops, receives, transmits, uses, or stores Covered Defense Information (CDI) in performance of a contract, either as a prime or subcontractor. There are steep consequences for non-compliance, including prosecution under the False Claims Act.

At DGC we have deep expertise assisting companies in the Defense Industrial Base achieve compliance with FAR and DFARS cybersecurity requirements and can help your organization meet its obligations.
