In-House
Since the enactment of the Privacy Act of 1974, data privacy and now cybersecurity challenges have been in the forefront of government acquisition professionals and contractors. The number of regulations and rules since the early 2000’s is truly mind blowing as the government and private businesses attempt to keep up with cyber hackers, cyber terrorists and other nefarious online organizations.   

These regulations, though confusing and cumbersome, are the first defense to keeping data and information secure as well as protecting the intellectual property of organizations. 

In this day-long program which kicks off a full week of lectures and hands-on interactive exercises, you will learn about:
