DoD Assessments & Reporting

DFARS 252.204-7019/20

In 2019, the U.S Department of Defense (DoD) showed their commitment to CUI security with proactive measures that required all defense contractors handling CUI to conduct NIST 800-171 Basic self-assessments and report the results to the DoD before contract award and renewal. But they don’t stop there! DoD reps also have 300 surprise assessments scheduled every year – giving businesses handling CUI just 5 days notice before conducting medium or high assessments!

Don’t put your DoD contract at risk or get caught off guard by a DoD NIST 800-171 assessment. Our NIST 800-171 solution provides you with industry-leading Defense IT compliance experts and assessors, that will conduct annual DoD NIST 800-171 basic compliance assessments, enabling you to submit your score in SPRS with confidence.

Kraken Compliance also provides you with peace of mind by providing DoD medium and high assessment support in the event your company is one of the 300 companies assessed by DoD.


DFARS 252.204-7021

The DoD is ramping up their cybersecurity game with the CyberSecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program. This game changing program requires contractors to demonstrate that they’ve implemented their IT compliance requirements by achieving a CMMC Certification to be eligible for new contracts. Companies without a CMMC certification at the level specified in the contract, at the time of contract award, will not be eligible for the DoD contract.

With the DoD expecting to roll out CMMC in 2025, don’t put your business at risk.

Get ahead of your competitors today! Kraken Compliance’s expert-led solution enables you to implement the CMMC requirements and achieve your CMMC Certification quickly, making cyber security your competitive advantage.
