Selling to the U.S. Government in 2021: Supply Chain and Cyber Considerations

Date: Thursday, February 11, 2021 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Recently, the U.S. government is increasingly taking steps to mitigate its supply chain risks with regard to hardware, software and services. Recent actions by the U.S. government to restrict the use of Chinese telecoms and other products have now been followed by additional restrictions on printed circuit boards made in China, Russia, North Korea, or Iran. In response to the increased threat, the U.S. government has imposed greater limitations on contractor use of Chinese suppliers and is increasing its oversight of the security controls on contractor networks that store and process the government’s controlled unclassified information.

In addition, Congress recently enacted what amounts to the largest collective cyber policy reform in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021. Many of these recommendations are responses to recent cyber incidents, with some stemming from the work of the Cyber Solarium Commission, which released its final recommendations to Congress in 2020.

Join Susan Cassidy, Ashden Fein, and Samantha Clark at 1:00 PM ET on Thursday, February 11 to discuss the following topics:

  • the new requirements of Section 841 restricting the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) acquisition of printed circuit boards manufactured in China, Russia, North Korea or Iran;
  • the new cyber policy reforms, many of which were recommendations from the Cyber Solarium Commission’s Final Report;
  • additional U.S. procurement rules addressing domestic content requirements that may be considered in the new Congress;
  • the DoD requirements for assessments for compliance with NIST SP 800-171; and
  • the status of the implementation of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC).
