The Department of Defense (DOD) on Nov. 4 announced its updated Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) 2.0 program.

The announcement has led to much speculation about the impact to prime DOD contractors and their subcontractors. For those companies already acting on this requirement, the changes could affect their ability to maintain and deliver products and services under their contracts.

With CMMC 2.0, the DOD will allow companies to self-attest for some low-risk kinds of controlled unclassified information (CUI) while requiring third-party certification for higher-risk forms of CUI. While there is change from CMMC 1.02, many things remain the same and, in some cases, accelerate the need for the defense industrial base (DIB) to have a close look at its security posture.

Join Chris Patteson, executive director from Archer IRM, and Matt Titcombe, CEO/C3PAO assessor from Peak InfoSec, for a discussion about what this all means for the DIB, including highlighting items and best practices to keep an eye on as the compliance program evolves over the coming months and years.

In this session, you will learn how to:

  • Minimize barriers to compliance with DOD requirements
  • Safeguard sensitive information to enable and protect your organization
  • Enhance public trust in the CMMC ecosystem while increasing overall ease of execution
