Countdown to DFARS 7012 Compliance
Government Cyber Security Consulting
SudoLynx helps government agencies with unique and regulatory cyber security requirements at all classified levels. SudoLynx Inc. capabilities include “baking in” cyber security controls during new system development and acquisition as well as “bolting on” cyber security controls for legacy/existing IT systems and networks. We implement current Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) guidance by designing, implementing and operating cyber solutions to deter insider and counter outsider threats. As leaders in applying the Risk Management Framework (RMF) Assessment and Authorization (A&A) criteria, we ensure customers receive an Authority to Operate (ATO) certification. Our assessment architecture has been described as the “gold standard” by Department of Defense customers. We work directly with our customers to improve existing capabilities while engineering a design architecture to optimize Government and Commercial applications, and software. SudoLynx has assessed and used “best of breed” Government and Commercial tools to automate over 66% of security controls to support cost affordable 24/7 Continuous Monitoring (CONMON) solutions. We provide repeatable and scalable cyber solutions from a single client to large scale enterprise environments. Our goal is to provide our customers with compliant cyber security solutions with zero Plan of Actions and Milestones (POA&Ms).
Cyber Security as a Service
SudoLynx is based on the idea that there is a better and more cost affordable cyber security solution by participating in a shared Cyber Security as a Service (CSaaS) where you only pay for what you need. On February 25, 2015, the Office of the Secretary of Defense AT&L issued a memorandum implemented DFARS clause 252.204-7012, which requires safeguarding of Unclassified Controlled Technical Information (UCTI). Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) instructions on October 21, 2016, further mandated that government and contractor organizations must implement 110 cyber security controls derived from NIST 800-53A and listed in NIST 800-171, to meet regulatory compliance. Businesses that fail to meet these DFARS standards by Dec 31,2017, may be restricted from bidding on work, or at the least, be less competitive than those that do. The DoD goal is to exceed a 92% goal in all government contracts containing DFARS clause 252.204-7012. The SudoLynx CSaaS solution, using our LynxLocker™ technical cyber security platform, leverages the power of many small businesses in sharing the DFARS compliant cyber security platform for the benefit of all. As a small federal contracting business, with our own cyber security requirements, we understand the DFARS compliant cyber security challenges imposed on small and medium sized businesses. Our technical solution meets all DFARS driven regulatory compliance. It also provides a competitive advantage over competitors that have failed to implement a compliant cyber security solution. SudoLynx is passionate about helping disadvantaged businesses compete in the federal market space and even the playing field for all those that see the benefit of a shared CSaaS vision.
An “All-in-One, Turn Key” cost effective way to meet NIST and DFARS cyber security compliance.
