Here are some questions Frequently Asked Questions related to new FAR rule in development
The new Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) rule is in development that aims to impose more stringent cybersecurity requirements for civilian contractors handling Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), similar to the DoD's Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). The rule will expand the current 15 basic cybersecurity requirements to 110 controls under NIST SP-800-171, ensuring a higher level of protection against cyber threats.
If your organization is a civilian contractor working with the federal government and handles Controlled Unclassified Information, you will likely need to comply with the new FAR rule once it is implemented. It's important to stay informed of any developments and be prepared to adjust your cybersecurity practices accordingly.
While the new FAR rule and CMMC share similarities, such as the implementation of 110 controls under NIST SP-800-171, they differ in scope and application. CMMC is specifically for DoD contractors, whereas the new FAR rule applies to civilian contractors working with civilian agencies.
It is not yet clear if the new FAR rule will require third-party assessments, like CMMC, or if self-attestation will be permitted. Keep an eye on updates regarding the rulemaking process to understand how assessment requirements may evolve.
Begin by evaluating your current cybersecurity posture, identify any gaps or areas for improvement, and develop a plan to address those issues. Consider working with cybersecurity experts to guide you through the process and ensure your organization meets the requirements.
The time it takes to achieve compliance will vary depending on your organization's current cybersecurity posture and the complexity of the requirements. Working with a knowledgeable cybersecurity partner can help streamline the process and ensure a timely path to compliance.
Yes, maintaining compliance with the new FAR rule will be an ongoing process as cybersecurity threats and requirements continue to evolve. Regular monitoring, updates, and employee training will be essential in keeping your organization compliant and secure.
