Cybersecurity Compliance Key to Business Sustainability
Corru-Seals, dba Nicholsons, is part of a global company specializing in the design and manufacture of resilient, high-temperature metal seals, gaskets, and ancillary components for extreme conditions. For over 45 years, the company has been supplying the aerospace sector from its U.S. site in Wallingford, CT.
The company provides a complete engineering service from design and rapid prototype manufacture to full volume production of standard, optimized, and specialized metal seals. They are an approved supplier for major U.S. aerospace industry customers including Pratt & Whitney, GE, Honeywell, Rolls-Royce, and Bombardier.
Like many manufacturers supplying the defense industry, Corru-Seals was faced with mandatory compliance measures to NIST SP 800-171. This was the company’s first endeavor into safeguarding Covered Defense Information (CDI), Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), and Cyber Incident Reporting.
DFARS 252.204-7012 compliance with NIST SP 800-171 requires contractors to provide “adequate security” for all covered CDI on all contractor systems used to support the performance of the contract. With over 20% of company revenue from defense products that fall into this category, implementation was critical.
