Utah PTAC is partnering with Project Spectrum to provide the latest skills and knowledge to strengthen your cybersecurity. The first 45-minute interactive training will be held Aug 4 at 9:00AM Mountain Time. It will cover seven of the notional CMMC domains, such as Access Control, Physical Protection, and System/Communications Protection. This training emphasizes how to guard against low-tech penetration methods, such as tailgating, badge copying, and USB dropping, through continuous monitoring, training, and vigilance.

Project Spectrum – a Department of Defense Office of Small Business Programs’ initiative – has three primary objectives:
1. To enhance cybersecurity awareness within the Defense Industrial Base (DIB)
2. To increase cyber capabilities and mitigate vulnerabilities
3. To train small businesses and manufacturers that must comply with the proposed CMMC standards

Cybersecurity failures cannot be prevented solely by plugging in a device or installing software. Businesses need to be continuously monitoring their physical environment and understand that cybercrime is a high-tech con game where criminals prey on the trusting, generous, and friendly nature of humankind. Consequently, we encourage our registrants to expand their reach for CMMC training because we have tailored this training module to all individuals regardless of their technological background.
