Government Contracts attorney Eric Crusius authored an article in Pratt’s Privacy & Cybersecurity Law Report about the steps that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is taking to overhaul and remake its regulations aimed at contractor cybersecurity and privacy policies. These efforts include better protecting contractor systems that handle sensitive VA information and possibly requiring prime contractors and subcontractors to enter into specified business agreements. In this article, Mr. Crusius summarizes some of the significant policies and contract clauses impacting contractors.
