The Executive Order (EO) on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity signed on May 12th, 2021, outlined several cybersecurity measures and requirements intended to harden our nation’s digital infrastructure against increasingly frequent and sophisticated cyberattacks. As these updates get incorporated into the Federal Acquisition Regulation for government contractors, they will become mandatory prerequisites for contract renewal.
These new cybersecurity requirements, implied from the EO, introduces challenges for agencies and contractors. Aligning to the EO is especially challenging as the scope is evolving and will not be actionable until 2022. In addition to the EO, Congress has additional cybersecurity bills working through the House and Senate that provide money and new requirements.
Our Cybersecurity Compliance Management Service is an iterative three-phase approach that helps reduce the time, cost, and risk of organizations who must comply to the impending Federal cybersecurity updates. As we are an active participant in the Cybersecurity community, our goal is to help organizations develop a shared understanding and alignment with the 2021 Executive Order (EO) requirements and new Congressional mandates so they can continue to deliver value with a robust cybersecurity policy.
