DOD CIO hosting industry day

May 2, 2017

The Pentagon chief information officer is hosting an industry information day this summer to brief companies on a new rule requiring contractors to report on network penetrations.

According to an April 5 Federal Register notice, the June 23 industry information day is also designed to address industry feedback on the implementation of the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement “Network Penetration Reporting and Contracting for Cloud Services.”

The final rule, which was adopted in October 2016, also focuses on policies and procedures as it relates to purchases of cloud computing services.

Registration for the industry day is due June 12. Organizations are encouraged to submit questions in writing by May 1, according to the notice.
