We all have read about the new cybersecurity guidelines issued earlier this year by the current administration, including the administration’s lengthy “Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity.” Unfortunately, it appears many companies in the private sector think, “this is limited to government agencies,” or they don’t have to worry about it because “we don’t do business with the U.S. government.” As a result, companies are doing little in response to this initiative and how it may impact them.
During this webinar, we will discuss why taking this approach may not only cause companies to ignore certain risks that impact their current operations, but also increases their risk of both legal liability and reputational harm. More importantly, we will discuss why dismissing the administration’s cybersecurity framework and approach could result in your company missing out on significant business opportunities, be it with the government or not. Indeed, we see this guidance and what is to follow as a significant paradigm shift. In this webinar, we will discuss:
- What are the requirements, and to which entities do they apply?
- What must a company do to comply?
- What does this mean for government contractors?
- What are steps your company can take today?
Looking at this directive from both an information security and government contracting perspective will not only provide a comprehensive approach to your company’s risk management, but also will identify strategic opportunities to develop brand loyalty, grow your business and help your company remain competitive in the marketplace.
