The Department of Defense (DOD) earlier today issued an interim rule, effective immediately, that significantly increases existing cybersecurity requirements for DOD contractors.

Contractors can expect these requirements to begin showing up in new DOD contracts immediately and should begin taking steps to ensure compliance.


The interim rule contains a number of new and revised DOD cybersecurity requirements. The key issues are summarized below.
