Recently revised cybersecurity regulations affecting US defense contractors and their subcontractors seek to address gaps in government contractor supply chains and expand the breadth of regulations in this area. In the February issue of Contract Management magazine, Dentons Partners Phillip Seckman and Erin Sheppard provide guidance to contractors seeking to enhance subcontractor compliance under these regulations. In the attached article, entitled “Cybersecurity and your supply chain: What you don’t know may hurt you,” the authors provide a three-step approach to ensuring compliance with the updated Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) covered defense information regulations within a contractor’s supply chain. Please feel free to contact the authors with questions.
