Engineering Information Security: Protecting Critical Intellectual Property and Valuable Digital Assets

Location: Your office

Date: Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Time: 2:00pm - 3:00pm ET




While most of the attention on cyber security is around protecting consumer information and privacy, the need to protect engineering data is just as important – and potentially more so.

Data breaches in the consumer sphere attract headlines, but when corporate data is hacked the consequences can be insidious. Costs, reputation, and security are all threatened and compromised. Restoring data correctly takes time, work deadlines may be missed, and you can’t assume your software/systems suppliers will handle it. Since information access policies are internal, organizations must develop their own procedures to prevent data breaches and establish protocols of what to do if one occurs.

For DoD contractors, this need is urgent – they must implement DFARS clause 252.204-7012 by December 31, 2017 or risk losing contracts. The DFARS clause is based on NIST 800-171 and this requirement may be extended to all government contractors.

If your organization is involved in defense or government contracts, or if you are concerned with corporate data security, please join us for a special one-hour webinar, Engineering Information Security:  Protecting Critical Intellectual Property and Valuable Digital Assets, on January 24 at 2:00PM EST.

Data management expert Mark Silvestri of TransR Corporation will tell you what you need to do to protect your organization’s most valuable asset. Specifically, you will learn:

  • What is DFARS clause 252.204-7012
  • What is NIST 800-171
  • What is Contolled Unclassified Information (CUI)
  • How to apply NIST 800-171
  • Policies and procedures to protect your engineering data
  • Role of the Executive Leadership Team and Organizational Business Policy
  • How to balance the need to share information with suppliers and sub-contractors and assure information security throughout the value chain

This webinar should be attended by anyone responsible for the security of engineering data across the enterprise including engineering, IT systems, and Cyber Security personnel.

Attendance is capped to allow for Q&A and discussion.
