Government Cybersecurity Updates and Issues

As of 12/31/17, the Federal Government implemented Cybersecurity requirements for all Civilian Government Contractors, Defense Department Contractors, Subcontractors, and Suppliers.  These mandatory requirements indicate how unclassified information must be identified, handled, protected, and shared all based on the National Institiute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-171.
