Fate of DOD Cybersecurity Improvements Unclear, Lawyers Say

January 17, 2017, Federal Contracts Report

Susan Cassidy is quoted in a Federal Contracts Report article regarding the fate of cybersecurity improvements made by the DoD under President Trump. According to Cassidy, “I would expect those to continue forward because I don't see a political will to say, ‘No you shouldn't protect this.’” 

The nomination of former Sen. Dan Coats (R-Ind.) to serve as director of national intelligence could be a positive for defense contractors, Cassidy says. “Anything that encourages the reporting of information is probably a good thing,” she adds. “I think the focus is going to be more on protecting government systems in the immediate future.”
