DIB SCC CyberAssist

Our Mission: Provide trusted resources to assist DIB companies and suppliers of varying sizes with the implementation of cyber protections, and awareness of cyber risk, regulations and accountability for their supply chain.




To assist suppliers in enhancing their cyber security protections, the DIB SCC Industry Task Force is identifying and posting links to helpful publicly available cybersecurity resources.  The resources were selected both to help companies (i) meet DoD and other U.S. cybersecurity standards applicable to U.S. federal contractors (e.g., FAR Basic Safeguarding clause, DFARS Safeguarding Covered Defense Information (CDI) clause, DoD Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)); and (ii) otherwise improve their current cybersecurity protections.  We will continue to add links to other available resources over the coming months.

Defense Industrial Base Sector Coordinating Council

The Defense Industrial Base (DIB) Sector Coordinating Council (DIB SCC) serves as the primary private sector policy coordination and planning entity for the DIB to discuss cybersecurity, physical security, insider threat and issues that affect the resiliency of the DIB. The DIB SCC sustains the security, resilience, and critical infrastructure protection advances of the U.S. Defense Industry, both as an industry coordinating body within the DIB sector, and in partnership with the Department of Defense (DoD) as the designated Sector Specific Agency (SSA) for the DIB. The DoD’s counterpart to the SCC is the DIB Government Coordinating Council (DIB GCC).

Operating under the auspices of the DHS Critical Infrastructure Partnership Advisory Council (CIPAC) framework, the DIB SCC was established by the Secretary of Homeland Security pursuant to the authority of section 871 of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (6 U.S.C. §451). The DIB SCC provides a single point of contact for internal coordination on a wide range of sector specific infrastructure protection activities and issues. It further provides a recurring forum for the DoD and the DIB to facilitate information sharing, discuss areas of mutual interest, synergistically leverage activities, eliminate duplicative processes, and collaborate on measures necessary to ensure the DIB sector mission performance.

The DIB SCC maintains relevant coordination with operational activities of the Federal government and other operational organizations via the National Defense Information Sharing and Analysis Center (National Defense ISAC) supporting the DIB SCC as the sector’s information sharing, analysis, and operational mechanism.
