Protecting DoD’s Unclassified Information – DFARS Clause 252.204-7012, Safeguarding Covered Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting

Synopsis:  This presentation will address DoD’s implementation of DFARS Clause 252.204-7012, “Safeguarding Covered Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting.”   DoD Contractors are required to provide “adequate security” for covered defense information associated with contracts that contain DFARS Clause 252.204-7012.  These security requirements are found in NIST Special Publication 800-171, “Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) in Nonfederal Information Systems and Organizations.”  The clause also requires DoD contractors to report to the Department when the contractor discovers a cyber incident that affects a covered contractor information system or the covered defense information residing therein, or that affects the contractor’s ability to perform the requirements of the contract that are designated as operationally critical support.

In addition, this session will address:

  • Covered defense information
  • Implementing NIST SP 800-171 security requirements, specifically the requirement for a system security plan
  • Contractor compliance with DFARS Clause 252.204-7012 and the requirement to implement NIST SP 800-171 not later than December 31, 2017
  • DoD’s Defense Industrial Base Cybersecurity Program
  • Resources to assist in the implementation of DFARS Clause 252.204-7012
