The Defense Cybersecurity Assurance Program (DCAP) supports defense contractors across the supply chain by offering expert cybersecurity training, consulting services and technical assistance. Additionally, a limited amount of grant funding is available for qualifying defense suppliers that need assistance in becoming compliant with DFARs 252.202-7012 (Safeguarding Covered Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting) using the NIST SP 800-171 (Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Systems and Organizations) security guidelines.
Compliance with this Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation is a mandatory requirement for defense contractors who receive Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).
This seminar includes informational sessions that describe DoD cyber contracting regulations and requirements, resources, and practical tools that your business can use to meet the requirements.
When registering, you have the option to choose which track of training you feel is best for your situation:
- Track 1: For individuals from organizations just beginning their cybersecurity journey, you will gain a clear understanding of the actions needed to become compliant with DFARs clause 252.204-7012.
- Track 2: For those individuals from organizations that have already developed a System Security Plan (SSP), a Plan of Action & Milestones (POA&M), and an Incident Response Plan (IRP), you will have the opportunity to ask experts specific questions about meeting the requirements of NIST SP 800-171 at your company.
