Training on Cybersecurity Standards for Federal Contractors

The Manufacturers Council of the Inland Empire (MCIE) will host a free cybersecurity training workshop for manufacturers. The deadline for meeting the Federal Acquisition Regulation minimum cybersecurity standards is December 31, 2017. Failing to comply means companies could risk losing their federal contracts. Many businesses do not know what is expected or how to get started, so MCIE partnered with “Major” Fred Lover, who will be speaking at the event.

Saturday December 9th
8 AM to 2 PM
California Steel Conference Center, Fontana.

The event is geared toward small and mid-size manufacturers. Even companies without federal contracts are encouraged to attend. As businesses move toward relying entirely on online platforms for sensitive information, it is important that companies learn how to protect themselves and their assets.

The training session lasts one day but covers multiple topics aimed at informing companies about cybersecurity risks and helping them protect themselves and their employees.

“Major” Fred Lover’s talents and drive took him around the world through parts of Europe, Canada, and the United States. Through his military experience, he gained the ability and knowledge necessary to thrive in the business world. He has served as a consultant, director, CFO, and Manager in various fields. Fred Lover is passionate about helping businesses increase their potential and profitability.
