Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has created a host of challenges for the U.S. government to address, including the need to prepare for potential Russian cyberattacks and questions about how to handle Russian connections to supply chains and government contracts. In this episode of the Faegre Drinker on Law and Technology Podcast, host Jason G. Weiss sits down with Faegre Drinker partners Dana Pashkoff and Jessica Abrahams to unpack the thorny issues at the nexus of Russia, cybersecurity and U.S. government activity.
The conversation tackles a number of questions, including:
- Given the rollout of Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) 2.0, how would an uptick in Russian cyber-attacks affect government contractors from a regulatory compliance perspective?
- What is the Huawei rule? Could we expect a similar ban on all things Russian?
- How could concerns about Russian ransomware and disruptionware attacks on U.S. and European infrastructure impact government contractors?
- How might the war in Ukraine and Russian sanctions impact potential supply chain cyber compliance obligations?
