SAN DIEGO, Oct. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Defense contractors across the supply chain, from the largest Prime contractors to the smallest Subcontractors, are bracing for a December 31st deadline to become compliant with a complex set of cybersecurity requirements mandated by the DFARS 252.204-7012 clause "Safeguarding Controlled Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting".

"DFARS 7012 Cybersecurity Compliance Boot Camp" classes run Friday October 20th, 2017 from 0800 to 1630 PDT at the Hilton San Diego Airport / Harbor Island, with simultaneous live streaming available nationwide, and Monday October 23rd in Honolulu at the Hawaii Chamber of Commerce.
Training costs $795, proceeds cover the costs of the non-profit Cyber Collaboration Center's DFARS 7012 Awareness Campaign, including production of the Boot Camp training events, webinars, and other community outreach.
