B. Riley Advisory Services’ Compliance, Risk & Resilience Group helps defense sector and other organizations address their compliance and operational risks in the face of crisis and disruption with these services:
Cybersecurity Compliance & Risk Management
- Enterprise Risk Management
- Emergency & Crisis Management
- Business Continuity & IT Disaster Recovery
We help our defense clients gain perspective around their cybersecurity compliance obligations to DFARS (NIST 800-171) and CMMC. We provide independent expert current state assessments, compliance gap analysis, strategy, maturity roadmaps, and skilled remediation support for their system security plans (SSP) and plans of actions and milestones (POAM), led by a senior, defense-experienced cybersecurity team.
B. Riley cyber staff has been deeply embedded in the defense sector at the CISO level and was integral in the development and negotiation of the original DFARS 252.204-7012. Our perspective is that risk-aware defense contractors must be prepared to protect the digital assets undergirding our nation’s secrets. To the extent the CMMC regulation and the new DFARS require effort, expense and attention, we think every size and type of contractor can develop a cost-effective way to meet the requirements.
Our commitment is to help our clients with a practical experience-based technical and compliance strategy, a reasonable gap remediation plan, and defensible decisions to prepare them for their DFARS filings and audits and their CMMC assessment by an independent C3PAO.
