DFARS 7012 Compliance
March, 2018, Mali Yared, Practice Director, Cyber Risk Advisory & Privacy, Coalfire
At Coalfire, we field a lot of questions from government contractors about compliance with National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-171. We also address requests for help with “DFARS 7012,” which is a commonly used shorthand for Defense Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 252.204-7012. The information below should help to clarify some common questions around the purpose of each and links between them.
