Speaker: Dawn M. Greenman,  Acting Program Manager Cybersecurity, JHU/APL

Dawn has over 20 years of IT, project and program management experience with the last 4 years focused on Cybersecurity.  Dawn is currently tasked with compliance activities to meet new DFARS Cybersecurity requirements facing DoD contractors.

Topic New DFARS Cybersecurity Requirements for Defense Contractors

After the OPM breach last summer, DoD contractors and their subs were hit, practically overnight, with new Cybersecurity requirements added to contracts through DFARS Clause 252.204-7012  “Safeguarding Covered Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting”.  Working through the obscure wording, coming to consensus on the interpretation of these new cybersecurity controls and then planning and paying for deployment of multifactor authentication to be compliant by the December 31, 2017 deadline is a challenge for any DoD contractor and subcontractor.

In this session, you will learn a little about the new DFARS Cybersecurity requirements (and NIST 800-171) and hear some insight into the steps JHU/APL followed to work through the process.
