Closing the Federal Contractor Security Gap

Are federal contractors less secure than the agencies they serve?

Some U.S. federal agencies have direct or indirect relationships with thousands of contractors and subcontractors, and many of these suppliers have access to the agencies’ systems, databases, and sensitive data.

All too often, a compromised vendor or subcontractor can serve as a gateway for hackers and cyber criminals to access the systems and data of digitally associated partners.
