Eric Crusius, partner at Holland & Knight, outlines new details of the Pentagon’s new cybersecurity certification, and how it could impact smaller contractors.

The Department of Defense’s new rules surrounding who can enter into contracts will go into effect sometime next year. If a company’s cybersecurity hygiene is not up to snuff for the Department, it could have massive ramifications. Eric Crusius, partner at Holland & Knight, says that building out this system is going to be a major undertaking.

 

“I think DoD is wise to build something from scratch. It’s a matter of whether they are going to do it quickly or a step by step process,” Crusius said. “Inevitably, if a contractor is not certified by whatever deadline DoD has though, they’re just going to be left out and not be able to bid on contracts, which is a big problem for those contractors.”
