(Last Modified:19-Jul-2022)


The highly interactive Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Risks (SWOR) workshop focuses on helping a Project Management Office (PMO), or small group of PMOs, understand their program’s cybersecurity/resilience requirements and develop a sound strategy to meet these requirements. Participants will gain foundational knowledge of Cybersecurity and associated terms as they each relate across the DoD Acquisition Lifecycle.

This focused workshop has the following key components:
  • Cybersecurity Assessment: A broad-based assessment of the program’s management and technical cybersecurity efforts past and present. A key goal is to determine the associated SWOR regarding cybersecurity and resilience for each participating PMO. Key focus areas are the Risk Management Framework (RMF), cybersecurity, resiliency and program protection efforts.
  • SWOR Strategy Development: After training, a short presentation by the PMO and completion of the Cybersecurity Assessment; all workshop participants along with DAU cybersecurity faculty will map out the SWOR strategy for the program’s cybersecurity success.
  • SWOR Strategy Out brief to PEO/PM: Presentations by participants to their PEO/PMO Program Manager, or leadership team, will include actionable steps to improve the program’s cybersecurity posture.
The SWOR workshop is tailorable and workshop results can be classified depending on the depth of each analysis. This is an internal focused event with results only provided to the organization participating in the workshop.
