Webinar Description: 

Contracting professionals inside and outside the government are likely now familiar with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model (CMMC). However, real questions remain about the implications of this standard to individual organizations and government contracting as a whole. Nevertheless, CMMC is rolling ahead. The Department of Defense (DoD) made two recent announcements:

  1. The DoD will begin a pilot launch of CMMC and will begin enforcing its use for certain contracts.
  2. Reciprocity may be given to certain contractors that have already had a cybersecurity audit (such as FedRAMP).

This webinar will discuss the implications of these two announcements as the DoD moves into an enforcement phase of CMMC and other agencies have begun indicating that may also soon implement CMMC. This session will look forward and discuss what contracting professionals inside and outside of the government should expect and the compliance challenges associated with CMMC all the way down the supply chain.
