DoD contractors, large and small, race to comply to NIST SP 800-171 or lose government business. 

In response to the December 31st, 2017 deadline for all Department of Defense (DoD) contractors, and in an effort to reduce the risk these companies have of losing their government business, the University of Utah Manufacturing Extension Partnership Center and the Procurement Technical Assistance Center are partnering to host two cybersecurity workshops on Tuesday August 29th at Salt Lake Community College and Weber State University.

“More than 268 Utah businesses contracted with the DoD in 2016, and man are not aware of the updated security guidelines to which they must comply”.

“Small businesses in every sector have become targets of cyberattacks because they are seen as an easy point-of-entry into larger businesses and government agencies,” said Theresa Drulard, MEP Center director. “Our upcoming cybersecurity workshops will be informative and useful for everyone—especially businesses interested in DoD contracts, and for those without a cybersecurity plan.”
