The DEFCERT team discovers and delivers new ways for the defense industrial base (DIB) and government contractors to meet their contractual and regulatory obligations for data protection. These efforts include compliance with DFARS safeguarding clauses, implementation of NIST special publications, and future assessment under the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC).

DEFCERT primarily works with defense contractors, manufacturers, economic development organizations, managed IT service providers, and technology companies offering solutions to the DIB.
