CMMC Deep Dive Webinar

CMMC: Compliance, Audits and What to Really Expect

Now Available On Demand

Attention DoD contractors: it’s no longer enough to have a security plan, a playbook, an outsourced vendor or make a claim to have your CUI covered in a “secure” environment. The Cyber Security Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), which combines a selection of security controls from NIST 800-171 and other frameworks, has teeth and is coming for you.

In this webinar, we took a deeper dive on the basic yet intricate certification levels and controls, venture into the technical weeds, and review pre-audit case scenarios. We covered what’s coming in early 2020, including perspectives from legal and industry experts, and ultimately, the reality of what’s right around the corner for the greater GovCon community that there is no way around.

Join NeoSystems, Holland & Knight and Talatek for an insightful discussion on this timely topic.
