Are you currently a supplier to the defense sector? Is your organization considering manufacturing products or components for the DoD or DoD contractors? If so, you are probably aware of the NIST 800-171 Standard requiring all contractors to have two basic cybersecurity components in place by December 31, 2017.
- They must provide adequate security to safeguard covered defense information that resides or transits through their internal unclassified information systems.
- They must report cyber incidents and cooperate with the DoD to respond to these incidents.
We understand that the new standard can be confusing and overwhelming for small companies to implement but compliance is critical to your ability to continue to do business with the Government.
Join MD MEP and our partners as we discuss the 800-171 Standard and what it means for the small and medium-sized manufacturer. The session will provide attendees with an overview of the Standard as well as MD MEP’s approach to compliance before the 12/31/17 deadline.
