Future Outlook on Cybersecurity Compliance Requirements

February 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Register Here!

The December 31, 2017 deadline for Department of Defense contractors to implement NIST SP 800-171 has passed however, Federal contracting cyber oversight is still heating up. With proposed GSA and FAR rules coming this spring, industry can anticipate continued guidance and regulation while simultaneously working to maintain compliance with existing DFARS cyber requirements. While many contractors may have viewed the initial deadline as something that’s come and gone, industry should be careful to view it as a starting point and not the finish line. Contractor’s cybersecurity frameworks are living environments that must be continually assessed, updated and reported on to protect against evolving threats and maintain compliance with Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) clause 252.204-7012. It can be expected that as further insight into the capabilities of contractors to protect data is obtained, the government will continue to require more stringent controls over information it feels is critical to national security.
