Government Contracts Cyber Café Series: Crisis Management - Beyond Compliance

Speaker: Hilary S. Cairnie

8:30-9:15 AM (ET)

Join us for the seventh monthly installment of our webinar series that covers the top issues in government contracts and cybersecurity — all in just 45 minutes. The Government Contracts Cyber Café provides coaching, training and analysis to help you work through the technical, legal, accounting and other requirements confronting your organization, with the goal of helping you achieve compliance with the current DFARS and FAR cyber rules, regulations and contract clauses. 

Our October webinar discusses "Crisis Management: Beyond Compliance." We all know that in the event of a data breach, you have reporting requirements, but what about the gray areas in between legal notifications? Are there other groups you should be talking to, and, if so, what do you say and when? This is where most companies drop the ball, and the cost of an event starts to skyrocket. In this session, we discuss the simple, proactive steps you can take now to ensure your incident response plan includes the appropriate communications tools and strategies so you do not lose control of the situation - or your budget.

Loren Dealy Mahler, president of Dealy Mahler Strategies, discusses these issues. Hilary Cairnie, chair of Pepper Hamilton’s Government Contracts Practice Group, and Heather Engel, chief strategy officer for cybersecurity firm Sera-Brynn, will moderate.


There is no cost to register.
