NFFS Webinar: Safeguarding Covered Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting

Topic: Requirements of DFARS 252.204-7012 - Safeguarding Covered Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting

Date: Tuesday, January 16, 2017
Time: 2:00 pm EST
Cost: FREE for NFFS members, $190 for non-members

In August 2015, the U.S. Government’s Office of Personnel Management experienced a massive data breach that impacted personally identifiable information for over 21 million government employees and contractors. This breach identified the need for the Federal Government to fix serious security lapses in its digital security models and to prevent future unauthorized access to government information. The Department of Defense has implemented similar new requirements to protect its digital information, and this will affect nearly all DoD contractors and subcontractors.

DFARS 252.204-7012 Safeguarding Covered Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting is now being required in most DoD and Government contracts. These regulations require, among other things, that prime contractors and their subs employ “adequate security” commensurate with the consequences and probability of loss, misuse, or unauthorized access to, or modification of, information. This requires that contractors implement the security controls based on National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-171, titled Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Information Systems and Organizations. Contractors are obligated to rapidly report (within 72 hours of discovery) any cyberincident that affects the covered contractor’s information system, covered defense information, or the contractor’s ability to provide operationally critical support. In addition, the reporting obligations require that contractors isolate and capture, if possible, an image of the malicious software (e.g., worm, virus, etc.) and provide access to covered contractor information systems and other information if requested by the DOD. As the DOD explained, a contractor will likely require the assistance of a technology expert to meet these new data security and reporting obligations.

Join NFFS and our technology partner Middleground Technologies for a conversation about the requirements of DFARS 252.204-7012 and what these regulations mean to your foundry. In addition, NFFS will provide information on a new network security program, designed specifically for foundries, that will help ensure you comply with the requirements of DFARS 252.204-7012 and protect your critical data from cyber and ransom-ware attacks.
