Heads Up on Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)

The DoD’s CMMC (Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification) is quickly developing and will ultimately affect over 300,000 Defense Industrial Base (DIB) contractors.  Effectively the In short, contractors at all levels of the DIB will need to achieve third-party certification to CMMC, or risk being deemed ineligible to be awarded DoD contracts.  This overview presentation is a good first step to sort through fact and fiction about the forth-coming CMMC program in order to better understand what CMMC will mean to your organization.  We will review the basic requirements of CMMC, the various levels of CMMC, and the timeline for the forthcoming release.  Ample time will be allocated to Q&A to ensure that as many specific situations and questions can be addressed.
