At the end of this year — if you are a Department of Defense (DoD) contractor or hope to be one — there are new cybersecurity requirements that will be in your contract that will require you to limit access to your information systems, identify system users, and take measures to safeguard federal contract information (FCI). Your compliance with these rules, among others, require documented processes and procedures.
There is some good news. Now, you have the opportunity to learn the details of DoD’s new requirements — and prepare to address the requirements — by attending Georgia Tech’s free briefing on cybersecurity being held Wednesday, August 9, 2017. The briefing will be held from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
This is your opportunity to learn why and how businesses, particularly DoD contractors, are being targeted by cyber attackers — and the steps you can take to protect your company.
Here’s how you will benefit by attending the August 9 briefing:
- Understand NIST 800-171 compliance issues for contractors to the federal government.
- Learn how businesses are being targeted.
- Learn about different types of cyber hackers.
- Explore the root causes of attacks.
- Understand how to identify your assets and risks, protect your assets, detect vulnerability, respond to malicious events, and recover successfully from such events.
