 NVIE Webinar Series:

Cybersecurity, Part 2

Earn Government Contracts with Cybersecurity Compliance

Presented by

Jennifer Kurtz

Manufacturer's Edge

According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, manufacturing is the second most targeted industry based on the number of reported cyberattacks. Further, cyber criminals view small and medium-sized manufacturers (SMMs) as prime targets because many of these companies don’t have adequate preventative measures in place.

For Department of Defense (DoD), contractors and subcontractors, business as usual is no more. As of December 31, 2017, all federal government contractors were obligated to meet the Defense Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) minimum cybersecurity requirements or risk losing their contracts.

  • Why should we care about cyber security and NIST SP 800-171?
  • What is at risk (business and contractual impact)?
  • Which areas did DOD identify in recent audits as the most common for noncompliance?
  • Where do we start?
