Evolving Government Contractor Cybersecurity Requirements

January 19 @ 10:00 - 11:30

Our adversaries are actively stealing the United States’ military and industrial competitive advantage.
Ubiquitous access to every organization’s multi-interconnected information system facilitates this theft. The US
Federal government recognizes the risk of theft of its sensitive information–such as Federal Contract Information
(FCI) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI)–from its contractors’ information systems. Therefore, all
Federal contractors have certain basic cybersecurity requirements they must implement in their own internal
information technology (IT) systems that process Federal contract-related data. Additionally, contractors that
process information related to Department of Defense contracts are beholden to DFARS clauses 252.204-
7012/7019/7020/7021 that require significant cybersecurity safeguards, which are a challenge for any
organization of any size to implement.

Mr. Austin, Cybersecurity Lead at Totem.Tech, a small veteran-owned prime USAF contractor, will give an
overview of these requirements in layman’s terms, describe some of the challenges of implementation, and
provide some resources that PTAC clients can use to navigate the cybersecurity landscape. Mr. Austin will also
explain the ramifications of the evolving DoD Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) that some DoD
contractors may have to obtain in the coming years.
