Cybersecurity Resiliency

Cybersecurity requirements are now mandatory for suppliers and contractors.

This is a DoD Funded event for DoD 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 CMMC 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)?

All Department of Defense (DoD) contractors must meet the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) minimum cybersecurity standards or risk losing federal contracts. If you’re like many businesses, you may not know what is expected or even how to get started. In this DoD-funded webinar offered by iMpact Utah you will learn the answers to these questions and learn practical approaches for meeting the requirements. We will cover all four training modules during the one-day workshop.
