DAU Hot Topic Training Forum on Unclassified Information System Security Protections
DAU will again be hosting a no-cost Hot Topic Training Forum, this time from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM EST on February 17, 2016 on the topic of: “Unclassified Information System Security Protections - Implementation of the Network Penetration and Reporting DFARS". This training event will be hosted and presented by the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) with support from the DAU Alumni Association (DAUAA). Presenters will include representatives from the OSD/DoD-CIO and OUSD(AT&L)/DPAP. The location will be the Hirsch Center in Scott Hall at the DAU Fort Belvoir Campus, Fort Belvoir, VA. According to the DAUAA, additional details include:
· Who/Attendees: DAU staff, faculty and students (past and present); defense industry professionals (Alumni Association Corporate Sponsors and DAUAA members have highest priority); Office of the Secretary of Defense staff; government acquisition employees of acquisition commands and agencies.
· Synopsis: “The threats facing Federal information have dramatically increased as we provide more services online, digitally store data, and rely on contractors for a variety of information technology services. Recent high-profile incidents involving Federal information demand that requirements regarding information security and privacy protections are clearly, effectively, and consistently addressed in Federal contracts. Representatives from OUSD (AT&L) and DoD CIO will discuss the implementation of DFARS Case 2013-D018, Network Penetration Reporting and Contracting for Cloud Services, the latest in a series of rules published in the DFARS which address the protection of DoD information. The rule expands the scope of safeguarding and reporting requirements currently found in DFARS Clause 252.204-7012 to address all covered defense information residing on, or transiting through, a covered contractor information system. It strengthens and updates information system security controls by integrating NIST SP 800-171, Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Information Systems and Organizations, and further expands reporting requirements to address incidents affecting a contractor's ability to provide operationally critical support. The rule also implements policies and procedures developed for use when contracting for cloud computing services.”
