Cyberspace Security for the Aerospace and Defense Supply Chain
Date: June 27, 2018
Location: Geotech Environmental Equipment
Address: 2650 E. 40th Ave, Denver, CO 80205
Myth: Cybersecurity is a concern for big businesses. Small businesses just aren’t on the radar.
Reality: Attackers are opportunists who look for the weakest link: All they need is one—and they have time, motivation, and financial resources. (Look at Target’s mega-hack enabled by a HVAC vendor’s cybersecurity error.)
Cybersecurity is a cost of doing business with government—but it doesn’t have to be an unreasonable financial hit. The most important message about being compliant with the NIST 800-171 guidelines is simply “get started”. Put your action plan together and work the plan! This workshop will walk you through the cybersecurity guidelines, talk you through a preliminary self-assessment, and offer templates to help you define and implement your security program. Questions addressed during the workshop include the following:
- Why should we care about cybersecurity and NIST 800-171?
- What is at risk (business and contractual impact)?
- What are current and emerging supply chain threat exposure concerns?
- Which areas did DOD identify in recent audits as the most common for noncompliance?
- Where do we start?
