Disharmony in the Cyber Acquisition Patchwork
While Executive Order No. 13636 asked for a review of "what steps can be taken to harmonize" existing cyber regulations governing federal acquisitions, a patchwork of more than a dozen different agency regulations – and dozens upon dozens of unpublished cyber policies – impose heavy burdens upon contractors seeking to build cost-effective cybersecurity compliance programs. On May 11, C&M's David Z. Bodenheimer will discuss this analysis and lead a co-sponsored program for the ABA Public Contract Law Section's Cybersecurity, Privacy, and Information Security Committee and the Science & Technology Law Section's Homeland Security Committee on "The Cybersecurity Patchwork of Federal Agency Rules & Unpublished Policies: How Do Contractors Comply?"
