Abstract: Cybersecurity impacts all, especially management. Project Managers have many things to think about and cybersecurity must be one of them. Whether it is security for corporate systems and the team or secure development of your products, cybersecurity is in all we do. Cybersecurity & Management will introduce what cybersecurity is, the people and organization of cybersecurity, the economics of cybersecurity, compliance, secure acquisition and procurement, secure development, and continuity.

Don Biedermann is a retired United States Marine Corps Communications and Information Technology Officer, Biedermann now works for the Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) as a Program Manager and the Cyber Security Manager. He supports the Navy’s Information Assurance Technical Authority (IATA) within the US Navy Space and Warfare System Command (SPAWAR). Biedermann has been working communications and information technology, along with communications and information security for near four decades. After receiving an undergraduate degree in Economics for the University of Southern California, Biedermann was commissioned and started his career as a Communications Officer. As information technology grew, Biedermann transitioned to computer systems management and ultimately became the Chief Information Officer for the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego and the Marine Corps base at 29 Palms, California. Upon joining SAIC after retirement, Biedermann was placed in the Navy and Marine Corps Internet (NMCI) program with SPAWAR, where he worked as part of the Navy team implementing the huge network. His transition to information assurance and cyber security over 15 year ago was a natural move with his background in communication and information security.
