Defense Department will crackdown on contractors not complying with cybersecurity standards
from Federal News Network
Contractors not up-to-date on cybersecurity standards will only get a pass from the Defense Department for a little longer, leadership says. The DOD will begin auditing companies’ cybersecurity procedures that want to win contracts and it plans to start by October 2020, according to Ellen Lord, DOD undersecretary for acquisition and sustainment. There will also be new cybersecurity standards for which companies will have to abide by if they want to work with the military.
