Cfius Mitigation Agreement

Handing over a signed letter of insurance or a national security agreement to implement, the compliance occupied and security guards often need signposts that mark the critical path to an acceleration of full compliance. At this stage, an organized and priority implementation plan becomes an indispensable tool. Typical mitigation agreements require some results and actions earlier than others. For example, an information security plan may be required 60 days after the validity date. Important markers, these deadlines built into the agreement, do not always tell the whole story. Obtaining a number of more distant agreements may require prior action that must be taken immediately. For example, a one-year annual report may require a review of visitor reports. However, to achieve compliance, the security team must immediately begin collecting and retaining visitor accounts. While managing the complexity of these compliance programs can be a challenge, retrograde planning from the due date of the first annual report can be an effective method for organizing your compliance team`s efforts.

On 20 November 2018, the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission reached a political agreement on the proposed framework for the revision of foreign direct investment (FTI). The preparation of a successful cfius compliance program can begin before a notification is submitted to the Committee. This preparation should begin with a clear assessment of your current security controls, covering all aspects of your business, including physical security and cybersecurity. The controls you have today will be the basis of all the new controls that have been designed for the implementation of the CFIUS weakening. Companies that understand their baseline can more accurately predict the efforts and timelines needed to implement new controls that CFIUS could target. Well-prepared parties appreciate the new security controls to be implemented and those that will be more difficult to implement. This knowledge can be useful in mitigation negotiations with CFIUS, where the parties to the transaction may have the opportunity to request the terms of the agreement that reflect the practicality of the necessary controls. When the agreement is finally signed, well-prepared parties will also be able to quickly begin the integration of new controls into existing policies and procedures. Because they know where to start, they know where to go next.
