What you need to know to comply with DoD cybersecurity certification requirements

Mar 11, 2020

If your company provides products or services in the DoD supply chain or plans to bid on DoD contracts, new requirements will apply to your organization.

Recognizing the threat of cybercrime and nation-state-sponsored cyber espionage, the Department of Defense (DoD) is enacting new rules to expand cybersecurity requirements within its supply chain. The new rules establish the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) and defines cybersecurity control practices and process maturity levels that organizations within the defense industrial base (DIB) sector must have in place. Notably, CMMC will be required in order to be awarded new contracts. Additionally, the CMMC moves beyond the existing trust-based self-assessment and requires an external examiner to certify the organization’s cybersecurity control processes and maturity.

During this webinar we cover what you need to know to comply with the Department of Defense (DoD) cybersecurity certification requirements, including:

  • Identifying Federal Contract Information and Controlled Unclassified Information in your environment.
  • Applying process maturity concepts to increase the formality of your cybersecurity management program.
  • Determining the technical practices that apply to your organization and implementing enhancements to your cybersecurity posture.
