Does your company work with the federal government or Department of Defense? If so, did you know your organization is required to be compliant with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-171 and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) cybersecurity standards for protecting controlled unclassified information by the year's end? This applies to all tiers of supply networks. Failure to comply with these standards may result in loss of contracts or sub-contracts, and in the case of ITAR, export restrictions or even imprisonment.
Join Automation Alley's Technology Committee for a Lunch 'n' Learn panel discussion aimed at getting your company compliant by the Dec. 31 deadline.
Panelists will share practical insights on these standards, compliance challenges, associated costs and legal implications. They will also address opportunities and risks posed by Industry 4.0 technologies for maintaining compliance and will offer tips to those who may be late in their compliance journey.
Any organization can benefit from this cybersecurity discussion, as the issues are widely applicable.
