IMA Webinar Broadcast: Emerging Trends and Threats Against the U.S. Defense Industrial Base

May 19, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm CDT

Emerging trends and threats against the U.S. Defense Industrial Base: How small-to-medium size enterprises (SMEs) can protect themselves.

The SolarWinds supply chain attack is just one in a string of threats against the U.S. and its critical infrastructures. The U.S. DIB and its supply chain are prime targets for criminals and securing the supply-chain is critical to our national security. SMEs must not only have defensive skills, but just as important, the offensive skills to prevent such attacks.

Join us for a panel discussion on how several U.S. agencies are addressing these threats and other economic threats, along with recommendations and resources you can take away and apply to your own business.
