Dr. Joe Adams joins us to present an executive overview of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), an important step in becoming certified to obtain and maintain federal contracts. As the founder of the Michigan Cyber Range and a retired Army officer, Dr. Adams has significant experience in Federal cybersecurity accreditation and certification programs to share.
The webinar discusses the CMMC and its intended use as a stepping stone for an organization obtaining full NIST 800-171 certification. This certification is critical because of the Federal requirement for all contractors to be NIST 800-171 compliant. Given the sometimes-daunting task of addressing hundreds of controls, written in technical government language, many companies could not complete certification. Now, the government has created CMMC as a means to help contractors work their way toward compliance.
This webinar will discuss the CMMC certification levels and how they relate to meeting the NIST 800-171 requirement. The discussion informs executives who want to know more about getting this critical certification and how they can start preparing their organization to be compliant.
