EXA Consulting to Host Virtual Conference on Agile Procurement & Cyber Space

The EXA Consulting Group is hosting a virtual conference on “Agile Procurement and Cyber Space: Critical Insights for Canadian Industry, Defence and National Security Agencies.” on Wednesday, May 12, 2021, at 8:45 AM EST.

This event will feature senior Canadian government officials from the RCMP, Shared Services Canada and cyber experts from CCTX and Bell Canada. Join this important discussion about the future of cyber procurement.

Unlike traditional capital programs, cyber procurements require the client and contractor to collaborate in ways beyond conventional defence contracting.

This conference examines how procurement models can successfully harness new concepts to implement rapid responses to changing environments. We will also explore how industry can continually respond effectively and efficiently to Canada’s changing needs.
