Webinar Series: Cybersecurity Resiliency for Defense Contractors

Cybersecurity Resiliency for Defense Contractors

1.   Do you have aerospace and defense customers?

2.   Are you looking to enter or expand your presence as a supplier in the aerospace/defense market?

3.   Do you know about DFARS 7012, the DFARS Interim Rule, and NIST SP 800-171?

4.   Are you confident that you have satisfied DoD’s recently modified DFARS requirements?

5.   Have you uploaded your current cybersecurity self-assessment to DoD’s Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS)?

If you answered “yes” to questions 1 and/or 2 and are interested in more information about questions 3 through 5, please register for the series of webinars being offered by MD MEP. These no-fee webinars will address these questions and offer practical approaches for meeting requirements. Participants are encouraged, but not required, to attend all three webinars as the materials presented build upon each other and provide a comprehensive overview. Recordings of the webinars will also be made available on the MD MEP website.
