Technology has become a core component of how companies do business, unlocking efficiencies that reduce cost and increase productivity. With these advancements have come significant threats from hackers and other malicious actors and a string of high-profile data breaches and compromises. In addition to this incredible challenge, many regulations are now in place at the international, national, and state levels, which govern data and information security. Navigating this landscape while running your business and maintaining your systems can be overwhelming. The cybersecurity professionals at DGC can help you manage these often competing demands by assessing the state of your cybersecurity, your compliance with regulations, and helping you achieve your objectives.

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? Have you assessed your network for technical vulnerabilities? 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, perform technical assessments, 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.
