Dentons government contracts lawyers and the Public Contracting Institute (PCI) presents this new webinar series addressing cybersecurity requirements for federal government contractors. This six-part series, useful to both large and small contractors alike and at both the prime and subcontract level, provides important guidance for contractors who are seeking to ensure compliance with the government’s rapidly expanding cybersecurity requirements. Contractors learn about the statutory and regulatory requirements applicable to contractors, including key agency-specific regulations; cyber requirements applicable to owners and operators of critical infrastructure, including the defense base; best practices for cyber breach investigation and response; and recent and future cyber developments, including the National Archives and Records Administration’s (NARA) efforts to establish a government-wide system for identification and protection of controlled unclassified information. The series is an invaluable resource for contractors who want to ensure compliance with existing cyber obligations while best positioning themselves competitively for future developments in the government contracts industry.
This series is taught by lawyers from our government contracts practice in tandem with lawyers from our global privacy and security practice. A schedule of the sessions is below.
