Will 2018 Be A DoD Contractor Washout? A DFARS 7012 Analysis

Sera-Brynn anticipates a defense industry “washout” as Department of Defense contractors and subcontractors scramble to meet DFARS 7012 cybersecurity regulations.

U.S. defense contractors, particularly subcontractors, are at risk of failing to meet mandatory cybersecurity standards required to do business with the U.S. Department of Defense.
The Defense Federal Regulation Supplement (also known as “DFARS”) requires DoD contracts to be fully-compliant with NIST SP 800-171, a security framework issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce, if they handle covered defense information.

The DFARS 7012 deadline is daunting for many small to mid-sized companies and begs the question: will 2018 be the year of the small defense contractor washout?
