A Complete Set of Online Learning Programs
On Cybersecurity for Government Contracting Professionals


All organizations strive to achieve a Culture of Cybersecurity – where all employees understand their significant roles and responsibilities in protecting and defending their organizations against the persistent and pervasive threats of cyber malefactors – and where an impenetrable shield protects all organization-related information and data.  

Here is a fast-track pathway to develop your Culture of Cybersecurity through a series of cost-effective online audio programs with slide presentation visuals.  In building-block modular one-hour listening lessons, you and all employees can:

Learn how to build a Culture of Cybersecurity through:
  • Constant vigilance and awareness
  • Proactive stewardship of information and data
  • Deterrence
Employees can listen and learn when it’s most convenient personally or in groups and/or team meetings. Employees can space and pace the learning over time and at their discretion.  
  • Decide to binge-listen to a number of modules and lessons in order of organizational preference.
  • Learn how to apply practical and relevant information immediately on the job.
  • Learn how to stay on top of changing requirements in the dynamic world of Cybersecurity. 
  • Learn how and why this information is important for CEOs; COOs; CIOs; CFOs; General Counsels; CCOs (Corporate Compliance Officers); IT Managers; Security Managers; QA and QC Managers; HR and Training Officers; R&D Managers; Logistics Managers; Marketing and Sales Managers; Program and Project Managers; Directors of Contracts; and all Acquisition Professionals.
