04-13-2022: HSCC’s Model Contract Language Template Represents a Win-Win Cybersecurity Solution for HDOs and MDMs

April 2022

“This freely available guidance allows HDOs of all sizes to include cybersecurity expectations in a legally binding document. As this template is utilized in agreements between HDOs and MDMs, it will improve the clarity, reduce the time burden, and improve the implemented level of security mitigations, as well as generally remove the confusion associated with contract negotiations over cybersecurity. It will not only serve to reduce the attack surface of an HDO but also communicate to the MDM what level of cybersecurity needs to be present in its devices in order to be competitive in the marketplace.”
