about the event

With current and future DoD contracts at stake, compliance is a strategic necessity that contractors cannot ignore. And with third-party Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) audits to be conducted as early as Summer 2020, time is running out for manufacturers to reach compliance with DFARS 252.204-7012.

Why Should You Attend?


Learn practical ways to proactively meet DFARS 252.204-7012 standards in order to keep or pursue contracts with the DoD.


Gain assistance establishing cybersecurity policies, practices, plans, and reviews that will help their organizations adhere to cybersecurity compliance requirements through different cybersecurity frameworks such as NIST SP 800-171 and its multiple revisions and NIST SP 800-171B.
