About The Conference

Demystifying DoD Cybersecurity for the Defense Industry Illustration

Defense contractors are facing increasing pressure from the U.S. government to prove they are protecting sensitive information and maturing their cybersecurity practices to meet a rapidly evolving threat. As the recent compromise of both public and private institutions reveals, that threat is real, and it is vital that organizations within the Defense Supply Chain strengthen their cyber defenses to safeguard our national security as well as their own business interests. 

With help from partners, Microsoft, FireEye and CMMC-AB, Ardalyst hosted a one-day virtual event that brought together the industry and government representatives below to discuss a variety of topics surrounding new and developing compliance requirements. Read on for session replays, helpful resources, and more.
