After nearly 150 attendees in the last session walked through the August updates and key steps for compliance this year - it is the intent of this session  to build upon latest industry news and trends and speak on brand new topics for 2018 compliance. The deadline for DFARS and CDI/CUI compliance (December 31, 2017) is practically upon us. Nearly all DoD contracts being relesed contain the DFARS Clause 252.204.7012, and now it will be imperative to maintain compliance.


After delivering and participating in a series of DFARS Compliance educational events in  2017, Sentar and Summit 7 are now working with a number of clients on the last remaining stages of their DFARS compliance implementations and establishing routine checks and audits moving forward. In this webinar you can benefit from hearing the lessons learned and industry best practices.This second installment of our DFARS, CDI/CUI, and ITAR Compliance webinar will cover any remaining updates in the DFARS compliance process in accordance with the DFARS 7012 Clause, NIST 800-171., and varous ITAR regulations. Because most contractors in the federal industrial base should be DFARS compliant or already in the process of becoming so, we will focus on the "what's next" for 2018.

  • How small, medium, and large companies are approaching DFARS compliance in the coming year
  • The latest DFARS Working Group comments for the DoD industry 
  • What to do now if you are not already into the compliance implementation process
  • Ask your toughest DFARS, CDI/CUI Compliance questions during the Q&A Session at the end of the webinar
