The United States Department of Defense is implementing the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) to normalize and standardize cybersecurity preparedness across the federal government’s defense industrial base (DIB). Learn how non-compliance with the new regulations by you or your subcontractors can result in cancelled contracts, lost opportunities and revenue. This webinar will provide insight into the
economic impacts of cybersecurity failures, how cybersecurity relates to Section 889 of the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) 800-171 compliance and the recent DFARS changes. You will gain a better understanding of your firm’s needs and where to go for assistance to ensure compliance.
