On October 6, 2021, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced the launch of its new Civil Cyber-Fraud Initiative that emphasizes accountability for conduct that could increase cybersecurity threats to the government. This initiative supports the Biden administration’s goals and efforts to improve U.S. cybersecurity generally. Those who do business with the government or receive federal funds need to be mindful of the updated compliance expectations this initiative poses. Our government contracts and national security teams discuss these risks in detail on our Global Regulatory Enforcement Law Blog.
