1 min read


The National Defense Industrial Association has found that the revised Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement and continued development of the National Institute of Standards and Technology cybersecurity framework create burdens on defense contracting, National Defense reported Tuesday.

The study, “Implementing Cybersecurity in DoD Supply Chains,” describes how defense contractors are responding to increasing regulation requirements.

The findings also show that the majority of respondents do not have high understanding of the NIST cybersecurity framework and DFARS.

Michigan State University’s Department of Supply Chain Management conducted the study in partnership with NDIA.
