End Network Connections After Sessions or Inactivity Period

Ensuring robust cybersecurity practices is imperative for organizations involved with the Department of Defense (DoD). Compliance with DFARS, NIST SP 800-171, and CMMC standards is not just a requirement but a cornerstone in safeguarding sensitive information and maintaining competitiveness in the defense sector.

CMMC 2.0 Compliance Insight: Control SC.L2-3.13.9

A pivotal control within the CMMC 2.0 framework is SC.L2-3.13.9, emphasizing the termination of network connections associated with communication sessions either at session end or after a defined period of inactivity. Implementing this control is crucial for upholding the security and integrity of your organizational systems.

Supports Compliance: Adhering to Control SC.L2-3.13.9 is mandatory for meeting CMMC 2.0 requirements and aligns seamlessly with DFARS and NIST SP 800-171 standards, ensuring strict adherence to DoD regulations.

Mitigates Risks: Automated termination of inactive sessions minimizes risks associated with session hijacking and other cyber threats, bolstering the protection of your organization's digital assets and infrastructure.
