Amendment to Unify Cybersecurity Requirements Proposed

NASA, GSA, and the Defense Department seek to standardize contractual requirements for all administration employees.

The Department of Defense (DoD), the General Services Administration (GSA), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) proposed a new rule to standardize cybersecurity requirements for all federal employees. The agencies have published the proposal in the Federal Registrar, requesting public comment on the best way to encourage consistency through the digital management of unclassified documents.

“By standardizing a set of minimum cybersecurity standards to be applied consistently to [federal information systems], the proposed rule would ensure that such systems are better positioned in advance to protect from cyber threats,” the notice states. “In the end, the trust the United States places in its digital infrastructure should be proportional to how trustworthy and transparent that infrastructure is, and to the consequences it will incur if that trust is misplaced.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Director Oliver Potts as he heads the Office of the Federal Registrar.
  • For the administrators of NASA, GSA, and leaders in the Pentagon as they work to ensure cyber security.
  • For the president and his cybersecurity officials as they seek to protect the nation’s cyber infrastructure.
