FREE Supply Chain: Cyber Incident Reporting and Data Protection in the Supply Chain Webinar
August 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
During this webinar, attendees will learn about the mandatory cyber security clauses required in federal procurement, as well as the mandatory flow-down clauses specific to contracts with Department of Defense agencies. Our faculty will explain the reporting, training and technical requirements for both prime and lower tier subcontractors related to these cybersecurity clauses. We will also recommend best practices for prime contractors and subcontractors and strategies to implement those practices.
This presentation will cover the new DFARS Clause on Cyber Security and address the following issues:
- The threshold questions of whether the prime or its subcontractors will receive or generate “Covered Defense Information” which would require implementation of the clause
- A discussion of the New DFARS Cybersecurity Rules and how they affect the procurement process from bid protests to mandatory evaluation factors in awards
- An explanation of the Cyber Security Flow-down Requirements and “How much responsibility does the Prime have to police its subcontractors and suppliers?”
- Attendees will learn best practices for reporting potential incidents, and for mitigating risk that is inherent with any downstream breaches in its supply chain.
