Cyber Security Regulations for
Defense Contractors 

The Department of Defense (DoD) is directing defense contractors to extend their cyber defense and reporting requirements beyond their normal methods. This new requirement arguably expands the contractors obligations to incorporate the clause that's critical to contractor operations. This advisory recommends several strategies that defense contractors can employ to address the issue.

The DFARS Cyber Security Clause requires contractors to:
  1. Provide adequate security of information systems in accordance with published standards.
  2. Investigate and report actual or apparent cyber breaches.
  3. Preserve affected media and systems.
  4. Grant DoD access to facilities and data for investigation and damage assessment.
