Forget Sequester, Secure Your Future in Government Acquisitions

Earlier this year, President Obama instituted Executive Order 13636 - Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity. The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) was tasked to provide the White House recommendations for prudent next steps to mitigate the risks this executive order addresses. In an effort to promote a more holistic approach to risk mitigation, GSA worked directly with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense, and industry to establish prudent next steps for how the government should procure technology and associated services. These new recommendations address what is expected from as well as government contracting officials.

At this event, you will hear from a panel of leaders representing public and private sectors who will address:

  • Why GSA was tasked by the White House to lead this effort as a response to POTUS EO 13636
  • Who was involved in the decision-making processes
  • What new industry requirements that must be complied with to successfully bid on future government opportunities
  • What the government is looking for as well as how the government plans to train contracting officials on cyber threats
