        Totem Technologies offers two-day workshops for small-business executives and leaders to gain cybersecurity risk management and compliance knowledge, and to develop the following components of a mature cybersecurity program: a System Security Plan (SSP), a Plan of Actions and Milestones (POAM), and an Incident Response Plan (IRP).

Meet the Instructor:
Adam Austin

        Adam Austin is a former educator and current small-business DoD contractor who regularly speaks in front of small-business audiences about planning and implementing affordable cybersecurity programs.

Currently, Adam focuses on helping DoD contractors and small-businesses alike become compliant with DFARS and NIST requirements. Adam is a Certified Information Security Manager and Information Systems Auditor (ISACA CISM/CISA), and has a Master’s degree in Information Assurance. His goal as an instructor is to educate, empower, and prepare organizations to succeed during their compliance progression!

Why should I attend this workshop?

        Our in-person instructors and cybersecurity engineers will help kick-off your organization’s compliance journey by focusing specifically on your current cybersecurity program’s weaknesses. Did you know that over half of the NIST 800-171 requirements can be met by adopting policy alone? We take a top-down approach, starting by developing common-sense policies that guide the implementation of specific processes, procedures, and technology to meet the requirements. We will explain and interpret the critical cybersecurity compliance regulation language that your organization will be assessed against. Totem Technologies’ representatives will collaborate with members of your small business to create a System Security Plan (SSP), Plan of Actions and Milestones (POAM), and an Incident Response Plan (IRP) that fits your organization and will help bolster your cybersecurity program while fulfilling your compliance specifications.

Companies will receive on-going phone and software support for 30 days to complete their System Security Plan (SSP), Plan of Action and Milestones (POA&M), and Incident Response Plan (IRP)
