iCatalog Home WSM 015 Cybersecurity Awareness Workshop
(Last Modified:07-Jan-2019)



The workshop introduces several methods to help guide the implementation of cybersecurity decisions such as Confidential, Integrity, Architecture, Authentication, Non-Repudiation, as well as reinforce the importance of balancing People, Process and Technology which is so critical to the cybersecurity risk management equation. Participants will be exposed to a solid foundation of cybersecurity “know how” and will also test their knowledge by applying what they learned. The case studies used in the workshop will gave participants ample time to work among separate teams to answer cybersecurity risk management questions similar to the ones that acquisition professionals will likely face in their respective workplaces.
