The benefits of cloud deployment in A&D
As aerospace and defense enterprises adapt to changing market demands and global volatility, the technology they use to manage their business becomes increasingly important. The complexity of product designs, compliance mandates, supply chain disruption, and cybersecurity all point to the need for modern, composable ERP solutions deployed in the cloud. Without modern solutions, organizations face numerous risks and won’t be able to take advantage of artificial intelligence, data insights, or enhanced supply chain visibility.
Cybersecurity in aerospace and defense
Companies in the aerospace and defense industry are taking a closer look at ways technology can help them to adapt to changing demands, while still meeting strict regulation and security mandates. Cyber security is an area getting more attention as enterprises adjust business models and find cloud deployment offers many advantages.
Managing supply chain risks in A&D
Airworthiness issues, trade wars, and supply chain disruptions have caused significant turbulence for the aerospace and defense (A&D) industry in recent years. The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting supply chain bottlenecks escalated these issues, especially ones related to procuring critical parts and components. Modern technology can help manage risks.
Get Ready for CMMC | Step 4: Remediate Gaps
This step of the CMMC compliance journey is when defense contractors fix all the security gaps they've uncovered in their IT systems. Read on for a detailed discussion of what defense contractors need to do at this stage, including a look at the difference in their anticipated workloads if they choose to use cloud-based vs. on-premises software systems.
Heads up, defense subcontractors: Just because your prime contractor is CMMC-compliant doesn’t mean you are
While the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is about to make a substantial impact on all defense suppliers, this conversation is really for the defense subcontractors out there. We have some bad news: your prime contractors may not be much help when it comes to proving CMMC-compliance.
Get ready for CMMC | assessment process updates
Take a break from reviewing Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) preparations to look at some new information released by the CMMC Accreditation Body (AB). Find out more about C3PAOs, RPOs, if civilian contractors to be CMMC compliant, and the potential for CMMC levels to be publicly listed.
Get Ready for CMMC | Step 3: Conduct self-assessment and update supporting documentation
Once defense contractors have identified their target maturity level and determined if they need help from external security or vendor services to prepare for the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) assessment, they need to look at their IT infrastructure like an assessor. This blog post discusses what this self-assessment includes.
