Ask the Cyber Expert – April 2021
For the benefit of Indiana businesses, especially those in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB), Purdue MEP, Purdue cyberTAP and Indiana PTAC have combined forces to provide free, monthly “Ask the Cyber Expert” information sessions related to the implementation of cybersecurity control measures at small-to-medium Indiana businesses.
The implementation of information security controls in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) is an overdue action that is important to the security of the Nation. While much of the information in the key requirements, NIST 800-171 and CMMC, is straightforward, there is a significant amount of the information that a non-information Technology person might find ambiguous or confusing. In fact, many IT professionals interpret the controls differently.
These sessions are designed to provide feedback from a seasoned cybersecurity professional who has an in-depth understanding of the DoD information security controls. The sessions will be unscripted opportunities to address policy, solution, and implementation questions with the focus on the implementation of NIST 800-171 and/or CMMC (Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification).
