Speaker: Tycko & Zavareei LLP Partner Renée Brooker
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has a new False Claims Act cyberfraud initiative.
Should I Report Cyberfraud to the DOJ?
The DOJ is interested in hearing from you if you work for a government contractor or government grantee and have knowledge that your employer is violating cybersecurity requirements, including NIST, DFAR (the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations), or any other cybersecurity requirements imposed by the government contract or grant.
How Do I Know If I Have A False Claims Act Case?
If your employer is doing any of the following, Uncle Sam wants to hear from you:
- knowingly providing deficient cybersecurity products or services,
- knowingly misrepresenting cybersecurity practices or protocols, and/or
- knowingly violating obligations to monitor and report cybersecurity incidents and breaches to the government.
