Starting August 4th IMEC is offering a 15-part training series specifically for manufacturers. Make Steady Progress: CMMC Cybersecurity 15-Part Training Series for Manufacturers meets the first Wednesday of every month through October 2022 this training seminar combines a deep dive into the requirements along with monthly action steps and support for ongoing progress towards Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC).

Each participating company registration includes

  • Monthly training – Offered live, with each session recorded and available for on-demand viewing
  • Resources and materials
  • Unlimited participants. Attendees can vary from month to month, depending on the training topic

This seminar has been described as a self-study program with a coach.

The other option planned for September and October is the Roadmap to 2025: Create Your Plan to be Cybersecure. This complimentary 2-session seminar features one virtual session and one in-person workshop. The in-person workshop for our region is currently scheduled for October 19th.

This allows manufacturing companies the ability to establish a baseline for their cybersecurity strategy and ongoing needs to meet Department of Defense requirements for contractors and sub-contractors with a 2025 deadline.

This 2-part seminar is possible due to a grant from the Office of Economic Adjustment and the Department of Defense.

Both of these cybersecurity events are hosted by IMEC, a team of improvement specialists and technicians dedicated to providing organizations in Illinois with the tools and techniques to create sustainable competitive futures.
