Cybersecurity – How to Better Prepare for DoD Cybersecurity Requirements

June 20 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join the East County SBDC for must-have cyber compliance information. This course was designed in partnership with CMTC (California Manufacturing Technology Center) to provide an overview of the current standards from the NIST 800-171 guidelines and the DFARS Interim rule, guidance towards how to become cyber-compliant as well as how to select third parties for assistance and what to be aware of with the introduction of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC).

What to Expect:

  • Understanding of NIST 800-171 and DFARS Requirements: Participants will gain a comprehensive overview of the cybersecurity standards and regulations that are critical for businesses working with the Department of Defense (DoD) or as part of the defense supply chain. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-171 provides guidelines to protect controlled unclassified information (CUI) in non-federal systems and organizations. The Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) Interim rule mandates adherence to these standards, and this training aims to clarify these requirements.
  • Guidance on Becoming Cyber-Compliant: The course offers practical advice and steps for businesses to achieve and maintain compliance with these cybersecurity standards. It addresses the processes involved in assessing current cybersecurity postures, identifying gaps, and implementing the necessary controls and measures to protect sensitive information. This guidance is crucial for businesses looking to secure their operations and maintain eligibility for DoD contracts.
  • Advice on Selecting Third Parties and Understanding CMMC: With the introduction of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), the course also provides insights into the evolving landscape of cybersecurity compliance. It offers advice on how to select reliable third-party services for cybersecurity assistance, ensuring that these providers are capable of meeting the specific requirements of NIST 800-171, DFARS, and CMMC. Understanding the criteria for CMMC and its impact on future contracts is vital for businesses aiming to participate in the defense supply chain.
