OEA Webinar: Cybersecurity Requirements for Defense Contractors

April 27, 2018

The Department of Defense’s Cybersecurity requirements were a hot topic at the recent DIA Learning Community Convening in Arlington, VA. The deadline for compliance has passed but many suppliers are still uncertain how to meet the requirements. DOD requirements for cybersecurity are far-reaching and impact suppliers at all tiers in the supply chain.

This OEA-DIA webinar, held on April 25, 2018, provided an overview of the requirements for defense contractors outlined in DFARS/SP 800-171. It describes the NIST MEP Three Step Process for compliance and helps attendees to gain a better understanding of the NIST 800-171 and NIST Handbook 162 publications. See below for the webinar presentation and recording.

Presenter: Patricia Toth, Cybersecurity Program Manager, National Institute of Standards and Technology Manufacturing Extension Partnership
