If you’re a contractor who engages directly with the Department of Defense (DoD) and subcontractors doing business to fulfill and execute those issued contracts, then you’ve likely heard of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) mandate. You’re not alone. The CMMC certification requirement will impact more than 350,000 organizations worldwide. This includes suppliers such as the DoD supply chain, commercial item contractors, small businesses, and even foreign suppliers.
The first step is seeking training and certification. But how, and to what extent will your organization need certification? While many will be required to attain levels 1 through 3, the RFP will determine the exact level of certification your organization will need for government contract eligibility. And that’s only the beginning. You’ll face many other challenges as you move through the process. Navigating those challenges with expert knowledge and confidence will help lead you (and your workforce) to CMMC success.
In this webinar, Shawn Duffy, founder and CEO of Duffy Compliance Services, explores these issues and more. One thing is clear, there are challenges to overcome, and getting started is paramount if you want to continue to compete, work and win DOD or federal contracts.
You Will Find Out How To:
- Determine the CMMC maturity level for your organization
- Prepare for the new changes CMMC will mandate on your organization
- Discover some important CMMC framework decisions to move toward compliance
- Discover common pitfalls early to build up your current systems with existing solutions
