The Federal government is placing ever-increasing attention on data protection and cybersecurity.

Last October, DOD issued final rules that impacted the DFARS – 252.204-7008, Compliance with Safeguarding Covered Defense Information Controls; 252.204-7009, Limitations on the Use or Disclosure of Third-Party Contractor Reported Cyber Incident Information; and 252.204-7012, Safeguarding Covered Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting.

Department of Defense contractors have until December 31 2017 to be in full compliance with NIST Cyber Security Controls as outlined in Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) Clause 252.204-7012.  This DFARS clause will also have to be flowed down to suppliers/subcontractors at all tiers storing, processing and/or generating Covered Defense Information as part of contract performance.  The rule applies to ALL acquisitions – even those below the simplified acquisition threshold.

This webinar will focus on the requirements, compliance, and implementations of these requirements for your business and your supply chain.
