Hello everyone,


The next free webinar in the DFARS 7012 Cybersecurity Series is scheduled for September 13th, 2017 at 1600 EDT / 1300 PDT / 1000 HST.

The official flyer.
“Strategies to Minimize Business Impacts of DFARS 7012” will be a two-part webinar starting with executive-level descriptions of potential business impacts companies need to be aware of, and strategies to mitigate these issues and risks. Specific risks include incident exposure, proprietary company information exposure, assuring subcontractor compliance, and interpreting the many gray areas of NIST 800-171 and other regulations. This 4th webinar in the series will provide executives and managers with a clearer picture of the DFARS challenge and how it may impact decision-making and corporate direction. Cybersecurity and DFARS 7012 is not only an IT issue but spans across the organization in HR, polices and procedures, training, legal matters, and physical security, and requires relevant cybersecurity expertise.
A lot of questions and concerns have been raised by the DFARS 7012 clause, and this series is providing updated information, clarifications from Government-hosted Industry Day, FAQs and resources to help the defense contracting community.
This webinar series is geared toward Defense Contractors and their Executives, Contracts Managers, Program Managers, IT Managers and FSOs. Learn more about how to interpret the DFARS 7012 regulations, identify compliance gaps, and implement the prescribed security controls.
