Doubling Down for the DOD

How New Cybersecurity Requirements Impact Defense Contractors

If your business holds, or hopes to win, a Department of Defense contract, you'll soon have to demonstrate that you have an information security program in place.

In June 2020, the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) will take effect.  Contractors can expect to see requests for certification appear in all Department of Defense Requests for Proposal; certification will be used as a go/no-go for continued contractual discussions.

This means that the maturity of a contractor's cybersecurity program will be materially relevant to the awarding of DOD contracts.

This webinar will discuss:

  • What is CMMC?
  • Why is it being implemented?
  • How can an organization become certified?
  • How to pay for the certification.
  • Next steps.
