The Department of Defense (DoD) has provided Florida’s business community with an enormous opportunity with their investment in our state. With more than $22 billion a year spent on contracted defense procurement across Florida and more than $95 billion in total annual economic impact, supporting our warfighters is critical to both Florida’s economic health and our national security.

As the DoD ramps up its focus on cybersecurity and securing their supply chains, manufacturers and defense contractors of all types will need to take specific steps to protect their networks if they want to continue doing business with DoD. Regulations for cybersecurity, including the Defense Acquisition Regulation Systems (DFARS) regulations and DoD’s new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) standards, are being implemented this year.



What Will Attendees Learn?

Who Should Attend?

Whether you are seeking a “best practices” approach to providing cybersecurity or will be required to meet the new federally mandated standards, this series of educational offerings provide an ever-changing model for responding to real cybersecurity risks that seemingly involve all aspects of our society. Regardless of your profession (risk managers, safety professionals, HR professionals, company managers, IT specialists, attorneys, etc.) or whether you represent individuals or provide services or are a vendor for public or private corporate interests, this seminar will be of significant value to you. Cybersecurity has become a major part of any Risk Management program. It is not for the sole concern of a company’s IT department; rather, it is “everyone’s problem” within the business and needs everyone’s attention. For those seeking updated technical information on the new defense “supply chain” mandatory cybersecurity requirements, professionals responsible for their development and use by industry will be presented.
