The new White House cybersecurity executive order requires agencies to take specific actions and meet hard deadlines. The vendors that serve government will also have new rules to follow as a result of the order.

  • Government contractors should be ready for the “worst-case scenario” by planning what to do if the executive order leads to heavy cybersecurity regulations in the coming months, said Eric Crusius, Partner at Holland & Knight.
  • The executive order lays out steps contractors will have to take, such as disclosing breaches and tracking software, but is open to interpretation until regulatory agencies solidify the details, explained Crusius.
  • Crusius said the government will eventually no longer want to do business with companies who are not compliant.
