Collaboration, Cybersecurity and Protection of Intellectual Property

The challenge to operate collaboratively and protect your intellectual property amidst elevated cyber threats is daunting. Cybersecurity is the 4th pillar of procurement in DoD on par with cost, schedule and performance. Expect increase in oversight and enforcement for Primes and all tiers in supply networks. In this talk, we explore opportunities to grow your business through superior collaboration, and to leverage cybersecurity compliance such as NIST[masked] as a source of competitive advantage.

Secure collaboration reduces total cost of ownership and compresses the product lifecycle from innovation to deployment. Innovation does not happen in isolation; you still must protect your intellectual property. DoD is encouraging partnering for bigger, better and faster deployment of diverse ideas such as those highlighted in “The Air Force Science & Technology 2030 Initiative”. Secure collaboration is key to success, not just a cost of doing business. It sets you apart.

Takeaways include:

- A holistic approach for cybersecure collaboration

- How to increase schedule visibility and reduce costs

- Protecting your intellectual property

- How to grow your business by partnering with others

- How to connect anyone to anyone with full privacy and security

- Implications for small to large organizations

Compliance with NIST[masked], NIST[masked], ITAR and other cyber-security standards
