We live in a world where almost everything can be paid for electronically and where most of our communications with others are done electronically.  We also live in a world where there are persistent and sophisticated efforts by foreign companies (and foreign governments) to hack into U.S. corporate information technology systems.  The U.S. Government and its prime contractors are placing ever greater restrictions on what contractors and suppliers must do to protect information shared by and with the Government and those primes.  Aerospace and defense companies must work constantly to ensure their customers information is protected, that their own employees do not accidentally - or intentionally - divulge trade secrets and other intellectual property and that they meet the strict standards to work with the Government.


The panel will address cybersecurity challenges throughout the supply chain, challenges facing both integrators and suppliers.  It will address the burden of doing business with multiple primes, each with their own standards, formats, guidelines and flowdown requirements.  The panel will look at unique challenges faced by companies with classified and export-controlled work.  Particular focus will be paid to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and incentives for companies that adopt it.  The panelists will also provide best practices for information security management and other measures to ensure better awareness of human factors that can create vulnerability.  Attendees should leave with a sense of how they can secure their own village in order to maintain best relations with customers.


After the initial panel presentationts there will be extensive opportunity for Q&A.
