Webinar Replay: DFARS ‘Network Penetration’ Rule- Protecting and Controlling Covered Defense Information throughout the Contractor Supply Chain
This webinar takes an in-depth look at the Department of Defense’s (DOD) evolving cybersecurity requirements for Defense Contractors.
The Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement or DFARS Rule on ‘Network Penetration Reporting and Contracting for Cloud Services’ includes sweeping new confidentiality and security requirements for “Covered Defense Information” (CDI).
The most significant update released in the final ruling (Q4 2016) was the subsection detailing ‘Safeguarding Covered Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting’. This mandatory clause effects all DoD contracts where CDI may be handled, used or shared and full implementation is required by 12/31/2017.
