Growing Your Business and Keeping it Safe 

Introduction to Government Contracting and Cybersecurity

Learn how to grow you business by selling to federal, state and local government entities and prime contractors.   Government contracting can help diversify your business but demands a completely different go-to-market approach than does the commercial sector.  Fortunately, the Northeastern Pennsylvania (NEPA) Alliance Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) is here to help guide you through the process.  This seminar will cover the basics of government contracting and how to get started.  

Internet access and basic computer knowledge are key components of selling to the government, and keeping your company safe online is vital.  In today’s online age, the number of threats to businesses and their customers increases every day.  Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs) offer a number of cybersecurity resources to help your business learn about potential cybersecurity threats, help your company become better prepared, and learn how to respond to suspicious activity or a cybersecurity attack.

Learn How:

  • The PTAC and SBDC can help you to maximize your business success      
  • To grow your business with federal, state and local governments as customers
  • To enter the government marketplace through a step-by-step approach
  • To structure and certify your business to receive the best competitive advantage for winning bids
  • To safeguard your business from cyber threats

There is no cost to attend, but registration is required.  Please register by Tuesday, February 20.
