Compliance Readiness

Florida Manufacturing Firm is equipped for Data Security.

THE CHALLENGE

NIST-800 Compliance

NIST-800 Compliance is a standard for information security to all external organizations working in concert with federal branches of government. NIST compliance ensures that necessary protocols are in place to monitor, restrict access, and prevent the loss of Controlled Unclassified Information (or CUI).

A small Florida Manufacturing Firm manufacture CNC close tolerance machined parts, custom components, and assemblies for the defense sector. Given the sensitive nature of the parts being manufactured, it was vital that communications and manufacturing specifications were secure while organizational infrastructure was put in place and maintained to NIST Compliance.

THE SOLUTION

Compliance+

ITonDemand was already providing our CORE solution for the firm. In addition, we were providing them with all hardware, software, email, and even file sharing. With this existing relationship in place, we offered our Security+ which provided the necessary measures to prepare for NIST Compliance certification.

Following a 110 point checklist, the team at ITonDemand either confirmed or applied compliance standards across fourteen families of security requirements to protect the valuable work being done.

Bonus Points

INCIDENT RESPONSE

Hardware and software can be replaced. Data cannot. For effective incident response, ITonDemand gathers events from log files, monitoring tools, error messages, intrusion detection systems, and firewalls to detect and determine incidents and their scope. ITonDemand then mitigates and responds to any incidents that may occur.

System and Communications Protection

Communications is the greatest vulnerability. To protect the manufacturing firm, we impose role-based security, separate privileged and non-privileged access, lock down access into their network from the outside, provide employee security training, and a myriad of other prevention standards.
