NOVEMBER 8 2023, Cybersecurity and CMMC for Contracts Managers: What When and How?

Topic: DoD Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Contracts Seminar 

Overview: Local Cybersecurity experts will cover the most common challenges defense contractors face in implementing the NIST SP 800-171/CMMC. Navigating the vast governance and technical options to meet the requirements of CMMC is plaguing many of the businesses in our own backyard. This session will provide a unique perspective to cybersecurity compliance which will provide valuable insight to both technical and non-technical stakeholders including executives, CISOs, in-house counsel, compliance officers, and IT personnel. The event will also be extremely valuable for non-U.S. defense contractors who will eventually be subject to cybersecurity requirements but may not have access to the same security solutions available to U.S.-based defense contractors. This is one that you will not want to miss!

Topics Covered:

  • What are the current and future cybersecurity requirements for defense contractors;
  • Identifying and managing sensitive information (CUI and FCI);
  • Saving time and money on meeting governance and technical requirements;
  • Harmonizing business protections and compliance requirements;
  • Implementing the right security solutions for your business;
  • Effective messaging to leaders to get the resources required.
