The past year has showcased major developments in cybersecurity: unprecedented thefts and attacks, with losses estimated in the hundreds of billions of dollars; expanding sector-specific cybersecurity statutes and regulations; and a sweeping Executive Order on cybersecurity for critical infrastructure followed by a recent push for cyber intelligence sharing from Congress. Expect even more significant developments to follow in the coming months.

On May 15, at Crowell & Moring’s annual Ounce of Prevention Seminar (OOPS), C&M attorneys will describe the recent changes to the cyber landscape, as well as give a preview of things to come, in a program called Navigating Cyber Landmines in the Corporate Boardroom: Why & Where Government Contractors Must Tread Carefully. Jim Regan will lead a panel featuring David Bodenheimer, Bryan Brewer and me. We will discuss the exploding risks, escalating legal requirements, and expanding regulatory and RFP burdens in cybersecurity.

Government contractors can register and find more information on the 29th annual OOPS program, including the complete OOPS agenda, here.
