Companies operating in the Department of Defense supply chain are required to have a proactive cyber risk management program in place, following the National Institute of Standards & Technology Special Publication 800-171 (NIST SP 800-171). Fortunately, NIST SP 800-171 provides an excellent benchmark that clarifies security posture for mid-market and emerging organizations. It is important to regularly assess risk against this framework as DFARS requires annual submission of a self-assessment on the SPRS portal.
