During this webinar, presenter Shawn Murray of Murray Security Services will cover the highlights of the CMMC program and what the new CMMC 2.0 requirements are for those looking to demonstrate a sound cyber hygiene in order to qualify for work on government contracts.
The federal government requires those that develop products, provide services or manufacture parts as part of the Department of Defense (DoD) supply chain to protect any sensitive information related to their work. In 2019, DoD made it a requirement to adhere to a specific framework called the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). This initial framework is referred to as the CMMC version 1.x.
There were many concerns about the initial framework which required a program review that coincided with a congressional mandate. Some initial outcomes of the review, which is ongoing, included a less rigorous approach. Once the new CMMC 2.0 is codified through rulemaking, the DoD will require companies to adhere to the revised CMMC framework according to requirements set forth in regulation.
This webinar will end with a Q&A session.
