Lunch will be provided.

If you do business with the DoD or aspire to do business with the DoD, you should seriously consider implementing an internal cybersecurity program for your corporate network and become compliant with DFARS 252.204-7012 and the NIST 800-171 or NIST 800-53 requirements.  In 2019 and beyond, this will also become a requirement for doing business with all Federal agencies and will be a significant competitive advantage for contractors who demonstrate their ability to protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).

For some small contractors it appears to be a complex and costly effort to implement a strong cybersecurity program, but in reality, it is a lot easier and less costly than you may think.  In this CXO Forum, we will walk you through the details of a 3-step process for complying with the NIST 800-171 (DFARS) and NIST 800-53 (FISMA) requirements and implementing the tools and processes to have a more secure environment.  We will also cover the costs associated with getting and staying compliant as well as resources available to defray some of the costs of implementing a cybersecurity program in your organization.
