New Cyber Security Regs for Cleared Defense Contractors

In our latest Legal Alert, we provided a summary of soon-to-be-announced Department of Defense cyber security regulations (Section 941) that will affect defense contractors with access to classified information:

Defense contractors with access to classified information will soon be required to quickly notify Defense Department (DOD) officials if the company’s computer network or information system is successfully penetrated in a cyber-attack. Those contractors will also be obligated to provide the Pentagon with access to their breached computer systems for investigation purposes, and also hand over any forensic analysis the company undertook following the cyber-attack.
