Register For 2023 vDSCI

Registration is now open for the 2023 Virtual DCSA Security Conference for Industry (vDSCI) on April 26–27! This year’s conference theme “Strengthening Industrial Security”—reflects the need to provide Industry with the tools and practical application to bolster their security postures. As programs and policies receive revisions and updates, Industry must learn how it affects them. 
This idea shaped the conference, which features such topics as National Industrial Security Program (NISP) 101, Facility Clearance Process, How to Run an Effective Self-Inspection Process, Cyber Hygiene, Personnel Security, panel discussions at the end of each day, and more!  The conference is open to cleared industry under the NISP.
Find out more and register.
