Robotic Technical Support Services (RTSS) helps companies stay competitive by providing engineering, installing, servicing and upgrading of robotic and automated systems. They also provide supplemental contract services to companies in need of additional engineering or service technicians. To keep up with the ever-changing cybersecurity compliance requirements, RTSS needed an assessment of their current cybersecurity, along with implementation and documentation of any necessary changes. RTSS contacted CIFT for help.
CIFT first conducted an assessment that mapped out all national cybersecurity requirements. Then RTSS’s cybersecurity was analyzed to uncover how their system matched up to the national requirements. The assessment served as a focal point for all proof documentation, compensating controls, explanations of how applicable each requirement is to RTSS and informed recommendations for cybersecurity compliance planning. A gap analysis was also included in the assessment which allows RTSS to understand how compliant they are to the standard. Proper documentation and descriptions of the covered contractor information system operating environments were completed in order to meet NIST 800-171 and DFARS requirements.
This assessment and implementation saved RTSS over $9,500 in costs. They also saved over $10,000 on investment while increasing their investment over $22,000.
