The primary purpose of our one-day 8-hour workshop is to ensure that small businesses are aware of the cybersecurity requirements mandated under Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations Supplement (DFARS) Subpart 204.73. We will focus on understanding the risks associated with safeguarding controlled unclassified DoD information.
The workshops will focus on the groups of controls from NIST SP 800-171, with examples highlighting what happens when these controls are not implemented. By the end of each workshop, you will become familiar with all 110 controls and be able to better identify the areas where you may need greater focus to meet the DoD’s cybersecurity expectations. We hope you’ll join us. For convenience, each of the workshops will be offered as an online webinar.

Cyber security is extremely important for businesses of every size. A weak cyber security profile puts a company and its employees at risk. Not only are finances and operations affected, cyber attacks diminish your reputation and customers’ confidence. Everyone involved is stressed financially and/or emotionally. For DOD contractors, it also puts the future of its government contracts in jeopardy. (As of January 1 manufacturers with DOD contracts must meet new NIST standards.) In this workshop you will:
- Learn about some of the biggest threats in the cyber security space today - ransomware, phishing, botnets, DDoS, malware, and more.
- Find out what business owners should be looking for and who is responsible for the safety of information.
- Find out how the January 1 deadline for NIST 800-171 Standard relates to manufacturers with DOD contracts.
- Learn about the “Chain of Security” and why a good cybersecurity profile means more than just a strong IT infrastructure.
- Discover why small and medium manufacturers are the #2 most targeted industry by cyber attackers.
- Learn the basics of how to start building a Cyber Security action plan.
The event is free. Registration is required due to limited seating
