    Stephanie Akerley is a Principal Procurement Specialist for The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission. She partners with CEOs, executives and end users to assist them in gaining the right product or service at the right price at the right time. After spending nearly three decades working in procurement, Stephanie knows what truly drives the procurement process —and it’s not just about knowing all “the rules.” It’s how well you connect with the people you’re trying to help and communicate your understanding back to them. This is true not only for internal clients, but external clients.


    Stephanie earned her first CPPB in 1997. After taking a career break to raise her family, she once again earned a CPPB in 2015.

    In 2017, she earned her Certified Technology Procurement Specialist (CTPS) certification from the Certified Technology Professionals Executives Society.

CYBERSECURITY - IF THE ADAGE "DATA IS CURRENCY" IS TRUE, HOW DO WE MAKE SURE OUR ENTITY'S "MONEY" IS SAFE?

Our entity's data is becoming more and more valuable, yet we are moving away from on-premises software solutions and opting to entrust the safeguarding of our most valuable asset to contractors and third-parties. Cyber attacks are becoming increasingly prevalent, and making headlines daily. How do we determine whether our data will be safe, and what steps can we take to address the consequences of a cyber attack on our data? This session will discuss two aspects of cybersecurity:

  • Assessing whether a potential Contractor meets our security standards. We will discuss different methods of assessment, including questionnaires, surveys, and using third-party solutions.
  • Cyberliability insurance. We will examine what it is, the current state of the market, and how to determine when we need it and how much we need.

  • Discuss what sorts of questions to ask of the Contractor in order to properly evaluate their security measures and procedures
  • Analyze how we determine when we need cyberliability insurance
  • Explore the cost of cyberliability insurance, and the level of coverage we need in any given situation.
