GW Law Government Procurement Law Program Cybersecurity Symposium

To better protect sensitive information and national security, the Department of Defense (DoD) is imposing more rigorous cybersecurity requirements on government contractors than ever before. Enhanced additional security controls are expected to go well beyond the security requirements of the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) today.

DoD's new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) regime will introduce a third-party certification process to validate cybersecurity compliance of contractors. These changes will require industry to make greater investments in cybersecurity and could lead to implementation challenges to come.

The colloquium will cover the history of DoD cybersecurity efforts from the past decade with a presentation from Richard Gray, Director, Intellectual Property Cadre, DoD; Professorial Lecturer in Law, GW Law.

The first panel expands the dialogue about the existing DFARS cybersecurity clause found at 252.204-7012 to address the implications of CMMC for contractors and agencies, including a dynamic discussion of how large, small, and commercial contractors are preparing for CMMC.

The second panel will consist of a roundtable of cybersecurity topics such as incident response, cyber-crime, legislative efforts to improve cybersecurity, the risks faced by contractors, and corporate governance.

Alice Eldridge, JD '91, will close the program with keynote remarks from her perspective as Senior Vice President and General Counsel for BAE Systems, Inc.
