If you want to continue to do business with the DoD you must implement an internal cybersecurity program for your corporate network and become compliant with DFARS 252.204-7012 and the NIST 800- 171 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 presentation we will walk you through the details of a 3-step process for complying with the NIST 800-171 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.
