By the end of 2017 Defense Department prime and subcontractors must have installed and be operating their respective information security plans and systems to safeguard “covered defense information.” These requirements are in addition to the current FAR requirements regarding “federal contract information” as well as existing DHS, GSA and other agency obligations. In other words, the effective dates of cybersecurity and cyberprivacy laws and regulations are in the immediate future and their implementation could impact your eligibility to contract or subcontract with the Federal government. Companies who are not compliant – regardless of their size – face elimination from supply and service chains.
