    Who Should Attend:  Government, Military, and Industry at all levels who want to learn about the tenets and principles of contracting for digital and cybersecurity efforts to promote change and collaboration within DoD programs and projects

    Speaker:  Ms. Kelley Kiernan

    Description:  This is the premiere event for a new DAU webinar series, designed for Contracting professionals, on Cyber and Digital topics.  You'll learn how your acquisitions must comply with the basic requirements of the FAR and DFARS and hear about best practices and lessons learned from an industry and government perspective. This will not be a highly technical view of Digital or Cyber compliance.

    Please join us to learn more about the existing family of Solicitation Provisions and Contract Clauses related to Cybersecurity and Digital aspects.

    What's in it for me: As a front-line Contracting professional you will improve your hard-skills related to Cyber and Digital compliance, and if you are in a leadership role, this will be a great opportunity to catch up on the constantly evolving family of FAR and DFARS requirements in this buying space.

    Note:  This event is specially tailored for Contracting professionals; Contracting Officer's Representatives; Program Office multi-functional team members involved with preparing Procurement Requests and the Requirements Document (e.g.; Performance Work Statement and Technical Data Package).
