Defense Contractors Don't Want to Say When They've Been Hacked
Dec.13.2012 — Mother Jones
Washington, D.C.-based Government Contracts and Privacy & Cybersecurity group associate, Kate M. Growley, was cited in Mother Jones magazine regarding a Crowell & Moring LLP client alert she had co-authored titled, "New Cyber Breach Amendment Raises Questions for Cleared Contractors." The piece focused on an amendment, introduced by Senator Carl Levin, to the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act that would direct the Department of Defense to establish procedures requiring contractors with security clearances to make disclosures when their covered networks have been successfully breached. The alert was part of the Mother Jones article focusing on contractors participating in a voluntary information-sharing program.
