Learn to harden Microsoft Windows for NIST SP 800-171 Compliance in this workshop led by CMTC, as part of their Blue Cyber Education Series.

What to Expect

Microsoft Windows is the most widely used operating system used by the D.O.D. Supply Chain. Out of the Box, Windows and the Microsoft Application Suites do not meet the NIST security recommendations. Manufacturers often do not understand the complexities of the Windows OS. Likewise, the manufacturing community doesn’t understand the tools available to them that are integrated into the Microsoft Windows OS Family.

This webinar will help you learn how to secure Microsoft Windows to prevent cybersecurity breaches and keep your files and data safe.

This 2-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
