Overview of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)

December 9, 2021 | 10:00 - 11:00 am CST

Overview of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification

For the past year and a half, the United States Department of Defense (DoD) has been working to create a process that ensures all contractors meet strict cybersecurity requirements for handling controlled unclassified information. That process (which is still currently evolving) is known as the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC).

CMMC is designed to support critical cybersecurity hygiene. If you are doing business with the DoD, you are expected to comply.

In this webinar, we will give a thorough overview of what CMMC is and how it can be achieved. We’ll help suppliers cut through the noise and confusion surrounding the certification process, and explain the recent changes introduced by CMMC 2.0., so you can be better equipped to navigate this developing landscape.

What We Cover

  • An introduction to the new CMMC standard
  • A detailed breakdown of the changes that have been announced from CMMC 1.0 to CMMC 2.0
  • Updated timelines for compliance
  • How to prepare, including steps you need to take now
