DoD's New Year's Gift: More Time to Meet Cyber Safeguarding Requirements

December 30, 2015

On December 30, DoD issued an interim rule amending the DFARS Safeguarding Rule in several respects, including to provide contractors up to December 31, 2017, to comply with the security control requirements identified in DFARS 252.204-7012, Safeguarding Covered Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting, and detailed in NIST Special Publication 800-171, Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Information Systems and Organizations. Despite the additional time to comply, within 30 days of contract award, contractors must still notify the DoD Chief Information Officer of any NIST SP 800-171 security requirements not yet implemented.
