As part of the partnership, Japanese firms under DoD’s supply chain may access and use controlled unclassified information from the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Special Publication 800-171 through the employment of various offerings, Exostar said Tuesday.
Fujitsu unveiled a Japanese language defense and national security tool that works to help organizations meet NIST SP 800-171 guidelines through Exostar’s ForumPass Defense and Managed Access Gateway offerings. In addition, Fujitsu seeks to use the tool to help Japanese organizations secure DoD’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification, which is currently under development.
“Fort# Forum eases the substantial time, cost, and resource burden Japanese organizations face to implement CUI protection that meets NIST SP 800-171 standards – helping to ensure these organizations can continue to participate on US DoD contracts, mitigating risk, and strengthening security,” Fujitsu said.
The CMMC aims to develop and implement a unified cybersecurity model to all organizations under the Defense Industrial Base’s scope.
