Join SSE as they discuss the potential business impact of the upcoming DFARS Cybersecurity requirements and what manufacturers working in the defense industry need to know and why they should prepare immediately.

Why attend:
This is “make or break” time for the defense contracting industry.  Many insider experts are predicting that Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) will “thin the herd” of defense contractors, as the entire defense industrial base faces the rigorous cybersecurity requirements mandated by the DoD and prepares for third party certifications.

Learn About:

  • The NEW requirements handed down by the US Government at the end of January 2020 and the risk of noncompliance
  • The DoD’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) and associated timelines
  • Discover the technical and operational requirements to meet the standards and associated investment to comply
