Two Webinars Covering the Latest DFARS/NIST Audit and ITAR Violations/Fines

My Post-3

UPDATE: RECORDING AVAILABLE. April began and ended with some big compliance news, but we were prepared! This month we have not one, but two webinars. So mark those calendars. We're teaming up with Sentar and Trade Collaboration Engine to bring you the first in-depth discussions on two pressing audits, their results, and how they impact your business. You don't want to miss them. 

Webinar Recording Available Here

May webinar-1

Our first webinar is on DFARS/NIST CDI Audit Results of MDA Contractors by GAO. 

For DoD Contractors, the period of "wait and see" for NIST 800-171 compliance is over. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) Inspector General has released a series of rather indicting claims within its recent report on several Missile Defense Agency contractors. We hosted two national Security and Compliance experts to discuss the addressed NIST Controls, scathing results, and ramifications coming from the report. Participants garnered key insights from the 30+ page report and the necessary steps to take within the next six months. Also, any updates from the May 16 Defense Industrial Base Cyber Security (DIB CS) Working Group in DC were reviewed.

Next, we have an in-depth analysis on FLIR's ITAR violations and Insights for the Industry on Tuesday, May 22nd 2018 at 10:00 AM (CDT). 

Last month FLIR was fined a staggering $15M in penalties from the Department of State’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) for International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) violations.

In this webinar, national ITAR compliance specialist (Matt Henson, TC Engine) and security expert (Scott Edwards, Summit 7) will provide key insights into the FLIR case and how it impacts the Aerospace and Defense industry. Attendees will learn the necessary steps to avoid similar pitfalls relating to policies, procedures, and technical security control measures. This discussion will assist your business in mitigating unauthorized exports and access of technical data. Don’t miss the most thorough breakdown of the case since its release.
