Cyber-security Overview

December 31, 2017 is the deadline for government contractors to comply with the cyber-security requirements set forth in the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement clause 252.204-7012 “Safeguarding Covered Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting”. Understandably, there has been much confusion over who this clause applies to and what compliance entails. In response to these questions the Rhode Island PTAC has compiled a number of cyber-security resources to aid small businesses in understanding cyber-security, how to assess current cyber-security plans and implement new ones, and how to comply with the regulation.
