BDO | 1 CPE | How Government Contractors Can Prepare for Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification
Join our Government Contract industry professionals as they share insights on what you need to know about Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) compliance.
In January 2020, the Department of Defense (DoD) released the first model of the CMMC, a tiered system of cybersecurity standards to be applied across the Defense Industrial Base (DIB).
In December of 2021, the DoD rolled out CMMC 2.0, which builds upon existing regulation (DFARS 252.204-7012) that is based on trust by adding a verification component with respect to cybersecurity requirements. All defense contractors will see CMMC Level requirements in their government contracts by 2025.
Contractors processing, transmitting or storing Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) will be expected to maintain either a CMMC Level 2 or Level 3, which will be specified in the solicitation or RFP. This discussion will focus on understanding if you have CUI, how to become compliant with specific strategies for small business, and what to expect during a CMMC C3PAO assessment.
