What the OMB Cybersecurity Proposal Does and Doesn't Do


Open for comment until September 10, the recently released OMB cybersecurity guidance, Improving Cybersecurity Protections in Federal Acquisitions, marks another attempt by the Obama Administration to improve our nation's cybersecurity through the regulation of federal contractors. Although it addresses key areas concerning cybersecurity risk management, Crowell & Moring attorneys explain in this Law360 article why the proposed guidance may generate more problems than it resolves by creating the potential for even more inconsistency across agency standards.
