Cybersecurity Requirements

New requirements for cybersecurity, which include the NIST 800-171 (compliance) and ISO-27001 (certification) have been issued by the federal government. The NIST 800-171 had a December 31, 2017 deadline while the ISO-27001 was expected to be required some time in 2018. These requirements have not only had an impact on the Tier One Suppliers but the entire supply chain, as well. Many SMEs expressed a concern over their ability to meet these cybersecurity requirements by the deadline.

The New England Regional Defense Industry Collaboration is running a series of meetings with New England State MEPs to assist SMEs to meet cybersecurity requirements.

Due to the impact of Covid-19, cybersecurity meetings will take the format of free virtual webinars and will be held across the six states of New England in late 2020/early 2021.
