Overview

Cyber threats have impacted every aspect of our corporate and personal lives in the past few years. These threats can cause loss of sensitive information, disruption of operations, and significant-sometimes catastrophic-financial impacts. In addition to financial gain, malicious cyber actors also seek access to sensitive information to provide to our competitors and our nation’s adversaries. To better address these cyber risks, the Department of Defense (DOD) is establishing the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). This certification will be required for most DOD vendors as well as their subcontractors. CMMC is also being cited as a model for use by other federal agencies and the private sector to better secure their vendors and supply chains against cyber risks. The presenters will provide perspectives on issues and challenges related to the CMMC process and provide tools and resources to help you understand how to plan for and respond to CMMC requirements. This information will enable you to improve the cybersecurity of your own organization as well as the cybersecurity of your vendors, customers, and clients.

Highlights

The current and planned requirements for CMMC. The relationship between CMMC and other compliance requirements. The two components of CMMC: implementation and third-party assessment. Types of entities that may be subject to CMMC requirements and the types of organizations available to assist in meeting those requirements. Steps that your organization (or your clients) can take now or may in the future be required to take to address CMMC. Potential expansion of CMMC-type requirements beyond the defense industrial base.
