The Federal Government’s Continuing IT Upgrade – Changes in Cloud Computing & Cybersecurity

May 11, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Maryland Procurement Technical Assistance Center

Much of the government’s data and IT infrastructure is moving to the cloud, creating the opportunity for long-term cost savings, increased interoperability, as well as heightened security. At the same time, the push continues to secure key data held on contractor’s IT systems. While this is a much-needed initiative to protect sensitive data from adversaries, it imposes yet more administrative and compliance burdens on the contracting community.

These changes have had and will continue to have a significant impact on federal contractors.  From DoD’s newly-finalized Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification to heightened cybersecurity requirements in procurements by civilian agencies, contractors must ensure they have the necessary measures in place to continue to be compliant and eligible for federal awards. And understanding the government’s vision for the continuing transition to cloud computing helps contractors of all sizes to develop effective business capture strategies for FY2022 and beyond.

Richard Arnholt and Sylvia Yi, attorneys in Bass Berry & Sims’ Government Contracts Practice, will talk about these and other trends in both cloud computing and cybersecurity, including:

  • Does the CMMC apply to my company?
  • What should I do now to secure my company’s IT systems and ensure compliance with government contract requirements?
  • What is the status of the government’s major cloud computing procurements?
  • How will the move to the cloud impact small businesses?
