In early August, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released proposed guidance aimed at strengthening cybersecurity protections for “controlled unclassified information” (CUI) on information systems operated by government contractors and subcontractors. The guidelines aim to mitigate the threat of highprofile cyberattacks on government networks by imposing standardized cybersecurity requirements, allowing government access to contractor information systems, and requiring contractors and subcontractors to report “cyber incidents” to federal authorities. Following their release, the proposed guidelines were subject to a 30-day public comment period, which ended on September 10, 2015. The OMB anticipates that the final guidance will be published later this fall.
