Sera-Brynn To Present Data Protection Workshop In Blacksburg

Chief Strategy Officer to Present on What New Regulations Mean for Organizations Competing for Federal Research Dollars

Suffolk, VA – Organizations accepting Federal research dollars and contracts from the Department of Defense have new cyber security compliance standards that just went into effect this year. This includes everyone from civilian defense contractors, manufacturers up and down the supply chain, cloud service providers (CSPs) and colleges and universities.

Sera-Brynn Chief Strategy Officer Heather Engel will present a workshop titled “Strategic Planning for Cyber Risk: Protecting Data and Meeting Regulatory Requirements with NIST SP 800-171” on Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center.

“Data is your most valuable asset,” says Engel. “Organizations wishing to do business with the government now must to comply with a rigorous set of standards to protect confidential data. Otherwise, they face losing hundreds of thousands of dollars in research, contracts, and grants.”

This session, sponsored by the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center will discuss what these new requirements may mean for your organization, present practical solutions for implementing controls, and offer insight into what to expect from future regulations.

The workshop will be held from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. You maybe RSVP to the event and learn more information here.
