Graduate Annapolis
03.08.2024 | 1:15-2:45 PM

Cybersecurity remains a key national security priority for the federal government, particularly for government contractors.  Over the past year we have seen a new final rule from DHS, two proposed FAR rules that will impact the federal supply chain, and enhanced enforcement initiatives (including a new National Security Cyber Section within the Department of Justice and the ongoing Civil Cyber Fraud Initiative).  In this panel, we will examine:

  • Two new proposed FAR rules on cyber incident reporting and standardizing cybersecurity for Federal Information Systems
  • Final DHS rule relating to contractor handling of Controlled Unclassified Information
  • The current status of CMMC
  • The SEC’s recent cybersecurity risk management and disclosure rules
  • Recent developments in DOJ’s Civil Cyber Fraud Initiative

Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, attendees will be able to identify and explain recent and emerging developments impacting cybersecurity compliance in the government contracting industry, including a new final rule from the Department of Homeland Security on contractor handling of Controlled Unclassified Information. Employ cybersecurity best practices in accordance with the DOJ’s Civil Cyber Fraud Initiative, and the SEC’s recent cybersecurity risk management and disclosure rules. Identify potential compliance and enforcement risk areas in the two proposed FAR rules impacting the federal supply chain and enhanced enforcement initiatives.
