Arnold & Porter Advisory

The Department of Defense (DOD) has published a final rule implementing its Voluntary Cyber Security and Information Assurance (CS/IA) Activities for Defense Industrial Base (DIB) companies. The DIB CS/IA program is designed to enhance DIB participants' ability to defend against cyber intrusions on their networks through voluntary information sharing between the Government and DIB companies. Companies that voluntarily participate in the DIB CS/IA Program receive threat intelligence and technical assistance from DOD that allows them to better recognize and repel cyber attacks based on compiled patterns regarding attack vectors and hacking trends.
