DBEDT is offering two free programs to help Hawaii-based companies and organizations become cyber ready.
Cyber Ready Hawaiiis a free program designed to train entry-level cybersecurity professionals to lead and support Hawaii’s small to medium-sized businesses and nonprofits through a cyber readiness program that focuses on cybersecurity hygiene and basic safeguarding measures required to meet federal contracting requirements.
Cyber Ready Hawaii is currently recruiting Hawaii-based SMEs interested in doing business with the federal government and/or current federal contractors requiring additional training and assistance to be cyber ready. For more information, click here or visit cyberhawaii.org/cyber-readiness.
For current, Hawaii-based DOD contractors and subcontractors requesting more in-depth information and assistance related to DOD cybersecurity contracting requirements, DBEDT is also offering the Hawaii Defense Economy Cyber Compliance Education Program in partnership with eResilience. The program includes an online webinar to help DOD contractors and subcontractors understand, differentiate and navigate various cybersecurity contracting mandates, as well as provides free consulting assistance to select contractors handling Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).
