OMB Approves DOD Threat Information Sharing Final Rule

Yesterday, the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had approved a final rule for DOD on “Department of Defense (DoD)-Defense Industrial Base (DIB) Cybersecurity (CS) Activities”. The rulemaking was submitted to OIRA on December 7th, 2023. The notice of proposed rulemaking was published on May 11th, 2023.

According to the Fall 2023 Unified Agenda entry for this rulemaking:

“The DIB CS Program currently provides cyber threat information to cleared defense contractors. Proposed revisions would allow all defense contractors who process, store, develop, or transit DoD controlled unclassified information to be eligible for the program and to receive cyber threat information. Expanding participation will allow a broader community of defense contractors to participate in the DIB CS Program and is in alignment with the National Defense Strategy.”

We may see this published later this week in the Federal Register, but it is more likely to appear next week.
