Alexander Major and Franklin Turner speak on Complying with the New FAR and DFARS Cybersecurity and Reporting Requirements during a webinar hosted by Massachusetts Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC). This webinar takes place at 11:30 a.m.
Recent significant data breaches have caused the U.S. government to assess its systems for protecting classified and other sensitive information. Since government contractors and subcontractors house much of this information on their information systems, new requirements have been implemented that place significant responsibility on contractors to protect government information and report incidents where the security of that information may have been compromised.
These new requirements have been outlined in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS), and compliance with the new DFARS system security plan requirements outlined in the NIST SP 800-171 (Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Information Systems and Organizations) is mandatory by the end of 2017.
Join us for this webinar to learn about the security and reporting requirements that must be met under these new rules, and best practices for implementation.
