Lead Report: Cybersecurity Plan Confusing, Should be Revamped, Attorneys Say
Apr.28.2014 — BNA Federal Contracts Report
Washington, D.C.-based partner, David Bodenheimer, who handles government contracts, FCA, privacy, and cybersecurity matters, talks to BNA about the recent draft plan released by the General Services Administration's to manage cybersecurity risks in the federal acquisition process. The plan is causing confusion among some, and Bodenheimer tells BNA that implementing more than one recommendation at a time creates difficulties. "It's hard to implement one in isolation without considering others," he said. "If you do that before proceeding with training, it's hard to have an informed risk strategy without having people with the proper understanding of cybersecurity definitions. If everyone is working with several different definitions, you come up with several different understandings."
