Past Speaking Engagement
  • This event has passed.

Payal Vadhani, a partner in Aronson’s Risk Advisory Services Group, spoke on a panel of cybersecurity experts at Miles & Stockbridge on Tuesday 3/19.

DFARS Cybersecurity clause 252.204-7012 required compliance with NIST SP 800-171 by 12/31/2017.  Issues related to these cybersecurity requirements continue to rapidly evolve but there have been some valuable lessons learned.  The panel of cybersecurity experts discussed such topics as:

  • How to prepare for and what to expect if a data breach occurs  — including timing, remediating the attack, information gathering (forensics), data retention and reporting challenges
  • Establishing a cybersecurity framework – protecting your/your customer’s assets is more than checking the box with a SSP and POAM
  • Why being proactive is critical to compliance
  • Cybersecurity requirements as an evaluation factor in procurements – preparing to identify and use your cyber compliance program as a competitive advantage
  • DOD’s increasing emphasis on prime contractor responsibility for lower-tier contractors
  • Evolving cybersecurity requirements in sensitive program areas – tracking varying cyber requirements across procuring activities
