SPOTLIGHT

CYBERSECURITY WORKSHOP
On Dec. 20, 2018, Northrop Grumman offered a free, 8-hour cybersecurity workshop designed for small businesses. By the end of the workshop, small businesses should be (1) familiar with the 110 controls in the National Institute of Standards and Technology's Special Publication 800-171 and (2) able to identify areas where they may need to focus to comply with DoD's cybersecurity requirements. The slide deck is here.

Northrop Grumman plans to host 40 small business cybersecurity workshops in fiscal year 2019.

Northrop Grumman's 40 workshops are provided through the Air Force Small Business Office Mentor-Protege program.
