In the last few years, Congress and the executive branch have been increasingly focused on cybersecurity for government contractors. Their heightened awareness and scrutiny have resulted in restrictions on specific suppliers or types of products, new certifications for contractors and, soon, an entirely new paradigm for evaluating contractors’ cybersecurity protections. These statutory and regulatory changes will require contractors to update their supply chain vetting, monitoring, and documentation procedures, and potentially stop doing business with certain suppliers altogether.
This course, taught by Tracye Howard, a Partner in Wiley Rein’s Government Contracts practice group and Co-Chair of its National Security practice, will provide an overview of recent statutory and regulatory developments in cybersecurity for government contractors, and discuss the implications for contractors as they navigate compliance with these new obligations and restrictions.
Tracye Howard is a partner in Wiley’s government contracts practice group and a co-chair of the firm’s national security practice. Tracye counsels and represents government contractors and subcontractors on a broad range of government contracting issues, including bid protests, contract claims and disputes, subcontract formation and performance issues, compliance with ethics and procurement integrity laws, and government investigations and audits.
