Malicious cyber actors are causing trillions of damages globally and represent one of the most present threats to national security, innovation, and productivity. Towards this end, the Office of the Under Secretary for Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment, OUSD(A&S) has developed the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework to provide increased assurance that adequate security measures and practices are in place. This framework pulls from well-established NIST and DFARS standards in concert with a certification element to verify the implementation of processes and practices associated with achievement of cybersecurity maturity levels.
If you are an organization looking to understand cybersecurity practices, part of the defense industrial base, or a technology supplier CMMC is potentially one of the most significant acquisition changes to come out of the DOD in years. Don’t miss this session!
