Is your company looking to improve network security on the path to cybersecurity maturity? Has a client informed you that you must confirm compliance with cybersecurity requirements or risk losing projects?

For manufacturing companies in the DoD supply chain, now is the time to implement current cybersecurity requirements and to prepare for Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification assessments.

California Manufacturing Technology Consulting – “CMTC” — is the Manufacturing Extension Partnership for California and Polaris MEP’s sister-Center in the MEP National Network. CMTC has developed a “Protection Level Topology” Cybersecurity Reference Architecture Model which can help with protecting Controlled Unclassified Information and other sensitive data.

Please join Ernie Edmonds, a CMTC “Cybersherpa,” for a comprehensive overview of the Model, followed by Q&A on Architecture and Firewall Optimization.

This 3-hour virtual workshop is open to small and medium-sized manufacturers and their IT service partners.

In order to ensure Polaris MEP and CMTC can offer this program for free and justify continued U.S. Department of Commerce funding for these services, participants may be asked to provide impact data and assessment through an impartial third-party survey firm, 6-12 months after the workshop.


This program is open to all manufacturing companies and their IT services partners. It may be particularly useful to companies with contracts or business within the Department of Defense Supply Chain.

  • IT leads, Systems Administrators
  • Owners, Managers, Engineers, Purchasing
  • Managed Services Providers, IT Consultants to manufacturers in the Defense Supply Chain
