Because your business is part of the regional defense supply chain, your business has a requirement to ensure your cybersecurity compliance. The program this fall is intended to help you with meeting that requirement.
Specifically, the requirements are described in Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations Supplement (DFARS) 252.204-7012 and in National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-171. If you are not familiar with both of those, you can google them, or contact the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, for more help. You are not required to participate in this program, but you are required to ensure your company’s Cybersecurity Compliance.
The Cybersecurity Compliance program will be provided by the team here at Missouri Enterprise. Missouri Enterprise is the NIST Manufacturing Extension Partnership organization for the State of Missouri, and is eminently qualified to support Cybersecurity Compliance in accordance the requirements. The cybersecurity program will consist of a 4-hour workshop, followed by an on-site assessment of your cyber system. The workshops are scheduled and will be held in Clayton at the offices of the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership. The on-site assessment will be at your location, and scheduled between you and Missouri Enterprise. You can sign up for any of the workshops – you need only attend one of them. You MUST attend a workshop prior to your on-site assessment. The workshops will be:
August 29 September 12 September 26 October 17 November 7
All of the dates are Thursdays, and all of the workshops will begin at 8 AM and conclude by noon. The regular price for the program is $5,950 per firm, payable directly to Missouri Enterprise. For the first 25 firms to register, we can offer a discount of $500 off of that regular price. For the next 25 firms to register, we are offering a discount of $250 off of the regular price.
