Handling Data, IP Rights, and Cybersecurity Requirements Under Government Contracts

Safeguarding data is just as, and maybe more depending on the application, important when dealing with U.S. Government data. As such, the Government is transitioning to a new set of regulations to ensure that its contractors are adequately safeguarding defense information. We will discuss the implementation of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (“CMMC”). We will also discuss other acquisition restrictions the Government has implemented in response to cyber-attacks, and how to protect your company’s IP rights in the data when doing business with the Government.
The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) is a global bar association that promotes the common professional and business interests of in-house counsel who work for and whose primary responsibility is providing legal advice to corporations, associations and other private-sector organizations. Accordingly, the ACC Houston Chapter reserves the right to limit attendance at any of its Continuing Legal Education (CLE) events to ACC Houston Chapter members or non-ACC chapter member in-house attorneys only. If you are not an in-house attorney and wish to attend a CLE event, you may only do so, space permitting, if you are accompanied by an in-house attorney from your company or organization.
