Government Contracts Cyber Café Series: Supply Chain and Third-Party Vendor Management

Speakers: Hilary S. Cairnie and Heather Engel

9:00-9:45 AM (ET)
Government Contracts Cyber Café Series: Supply Chain and Third-Party Vendor Management

Join us for a new webinar series that will cover the top issues in government contracts and cybersecurity — all in just 45 minutes. The Government Contracts Cyber Café will provide coaching, training and analysis to help you work through the technical, legal, accounting and other requirements confronting your organization, with the goal of helping you achieve compliance with the current DFARS and FAR cyber rules, regulations and contract clauses.

Our first webinar will discuss “Supply Chain and Third-Party Vendor Management,” a critical component of cybersecurity and a mandatory requirement under current regulations. As companies improve cybersecurity, criminals look to the weakest links in the chain to exploit vulnerabilities and gain access to information, making it more important than ever to address these potential liabilities. Hilary Cairnie, chair of Pepper Hamilton’s Government Contracts Practice Group, and Heather Engel, chief strategy officer for cybersecurity firm Sera-Brynn, will discuss these issues, including the legalities of flow-down clauses.
