Inland Empire Training: Cybersecurity Standards for Federal Contractors
Training on Cybersecurity Standards for Federal Contractors
December 9, 2017 – 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
The Inland Empire/Desert Region of the California Community Colleges along with the Manufacturers’ Council of the Inland Empire are sponsoring a Free CyberSecurity training event in Fontana on December 9th. This event is primarily aimed at small businesses who have an IT staff of from 0 to 3 people (sometimes it is the accountant who is also the IT person, because they were the first one to get a computer,) but is open to all.
All contractors must meet Minimum Cyber Security Standards by December 31, 2017 or risk losing federal contracts. If you’re like many businesses, you may not know what is expected or even how to get started. We have assembled a team of cybersecurity experts to determine if you are compliant. You can find more information about the event on our website.
