Government Contractors: Conquer CMMC with an Enclave Approach

The winds of cybersecurity change are blowing strong for government contractors. DFARS clauses 252.204-7012 (Safeguarding Covered Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting) and 252.204-7021 (Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Requirements) raise the bar for protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). But for many contractors, achieving full CMMC compliance across their entire IT infrastructure can feel overwhelming.

This is where the Enclave strategy come in, offering a targeted approach to CMMC implementation.

What is an Enclave?

Think of an Enclave as a secure haven within your larger IT environment. It’s a dedicated space where CUI and the systems processing, storing, or transmitting it are intentionally limited to a subset of dedicated resources. By focusing your CMMC requirements on this enclave, you can significantly reduce the burden compared to tackling your entire network.

Why Enclaves Make Sense for CMMC

  • Reduced Scope, Reduced Effort: Enclaves let you concentrate your CMMC efforts on a smaller, more manageable set of systems. This translates to less time, resources, and cost required for achieving compliance.
  • Enhanced Security: Enclaves inherently strengthen your CUI security posture. The isolation provided by the enclave minimizes the risk of breaches spreading to other parts of your network (and vice versa).
  • Improved Efficiency: By isolating CUI systems, you can streamline your internal processes for managing and accessing this sensitive information.
