The United States’ adversaries are actively stealing the country’s military and industrial competitive advantage. Ubiquitous access to every organization’s multi-interconnected information systems facilitates this theft. The US Federal government recognizes the risk of theft of its sensitive information from its contractors’ information systems, such as Federal Contract Information (FCI) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). Therefore, all Federal contractors have certain basic cybersecurity requirements they must implement in their internal information technology (IT) systems that process Federal contract-related data. Additionally, contractors that process information related to the Department of Defense contracts are beholden to DFARS clause 252.204-7012/7019/7020/7021, which requires significant cybersecurity safeguards. These safeguards are a challenge for any organization of any size to implement.

Mr. Austin, Cybersecurity Lead at Totem Tech, a small veteran-owned prime USAF contractor, will give an overview of these requirements in layman’s terms, describe some of the implementation challenges, and provide resources that you can use to navigate the cybersecurity landscape. Mr. Austin will also explain the ramifications of the evolving DoD Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) that all DoD contractors must obtain over the next five years.

Target Audience: PTAC counselors, MEP counselors, DoD contract officers and program managers, DoD contractors and IT staff, IT managed service providers, IT managed security service providers

Speaker(s): Adam Austin, Totem Technologies
