    San Luis Obispo, Calif. – Businesses can meet resource partners and learn strategies to become more competitive in cybersecurity-related opportunities at the free Tri-County Defense Supply Chain and Business Resource Fair, 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., March 1, at the California Cybersecurity Institute (CCI) at Camp San Luis Obispo, 10 Sonoma Ave, San Luis Obispo. All businesses interested or already participating in government contracting are welcome. Defense contractors or subcontractors are especially encouraged to attend.

    The Economic Development Collaborative (EDC), in partnership with the California Community Colleges Doing What Matters for Small Business, the San Diego East County Economic Development Council and the Employment Training Panel are hosting this event to help connect businesses to government procurement opportunities as part of the California Advanced Supply Chain Analysis and Diversification Effort (CASCADE) initiative. Businesses will have the opportunity to attend workshops and connect with resources to be more competitive and become more resilient in cybersecurity.

    “EDC and its Small Business Development Center serve as a hub for businesses throughout the Tri-County Region, including those interested in serving the aerospace and defense supply chain,” said Bruce Stenslie, EDC president and CEO. “This informative free event will help small businesses learn how to be competitive in the government market and find out which government agencies buy what they are already selling.”

    The event will feature a series of workshops, networking with presenters and attendees and presentations by industry experts including Chris Buthe, manager of Cyber Physical Security Services, Elizabeth Liddell, program manager with the East County Economic Development Council, Jo Marie Diamond, president and CEO of the San Diego East County Economic Development Council and Gayla Jurevich, deputy sector navigator for the Small Business South Central Region and director at the Cuesta College Business and Entrepreneurship Center, among others.
