Course Description

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.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review the recent statutory and regulatory bans on specific products and suppliers
  2. Explore the compliance and supply chain implications of these new requirements for government contractors
  3. Analyze the Department of Defense’s new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) process and steps contractors should be taking now to prepare for its implementation
