Chantilly, VA (PRWEB) March 07, 2017
EmeSec Incorporated, an expert in cloud computing, security and engineering services, today announced that the company has partnered with BOOST, a government contracting consultancy, to provide full lifecycle support for customers looking to achieve CUI compliance. This includes pre-assessments, readiness evaluations, technical tool recommendations, roadmap development, and assistance with meeting the NARA requirements articulated in FAR 52.204.21 and DFARS 252.204.7012.
EmeSec is leading the charge in helping government and private contractors assess CUI readiness and validate compliance to the new requirements identified in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-171, Revision (Rev.) 1.
The company supports clients in evaluating and establishing customized compliance to the new CUI standard. The partnership with BOOST enables EmeSec to provide more complete support addressing the operational assistance with associated CUI requirements such as contracting, staffing and administrative services. The EmeSec-BOOST partnership provides their customers access to efficient, cost-effective, and impactful guidance and tools to achieve compliance from the back office through the information and supply chain requirements including cyber.
CUI requirements impact light manufacturing, technical services, and other businesses not normally focused on cybersecurity or employing high end compliance and cyber experts. “Since the inception of EmeSec’s CUI practice, our goal has been to deliver an optimized, business-oriented approach that advocates for companies to accomplish compliance shaping and addressing their CUI risks without reinventing or replacing their current practices,” said Maria Horton, CEO of EmeSec. “BOOST provides expertise and practical assistance with the DCAA requirements as well as the CUI elements within contracts, while EmeSec offers customized levels of evaluation and assistance in meeting the CUI requirements from a regulatory and cyber perspective. Together, we are able to deliver an industry-leading offering that helps all companies including small and medium sized businesses - practically setting the standard for CUI compliance achievement.”
Non-compliance with the FAR and DFARS CUI requirements has the potential to halt federal contractors from working, whether in a prime or subcontractor contract status.
