Through the partnership, the team of Polaris Alpha and Imprimis can support a full range of contractors or other organizations from small to very large, the companies said.
The requirement for cybersecurity risk management and compliance is demanded by the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations Supplement, specifically DFARS 207.73 and 252.704-7012 for all contractors working for the Department of Defense.
The deadline for achieving compliance is December 31, 2017, and compliance must be maintained thereafter.
In addition, all government contractors are required by the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR 52.204-21) to comply NIST 800-171, currently with a subset of requirements and soon in its entirety.
With the explosion of cybercrime, all businesses will soon need to manage the growing risk and embrace cybersecurity as the fiduciary responsibility it is.
“We see the need for cybersecurity to be increasing very rapidly as the threat grows,” said Eric Schlesinger, Polaris Alpha chief information security officer.
“Polaris Alpha is making a significant contribution in this area and we leverage the Imprimis cyber compliance tools because they are well suited for this purpose.”
“We are very pleased to be partnered with an outstanding firm like Polaris Alpha,” said Michael Semmens, Imprimis president. “This partnership allows us to support organizations of any size anywhere within the United States and beyond.”
