Please join NOVA ISC2 Chapter on February 18, 2021, at 6pm for a webinar with CDR Cliff Neve, USCG (Ret) to discuss how you can prepare your organization for the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)  and the challenges organizations face when addressing control requirements or implementing the needed processes.  

The Department of Defense (DoD) had recently introduced new security requirements for contractors to ensure that they protect controlled unclassified information (CUI) that may be managed or handled by the contractor on behalf of the DoD. Implemented on November 30, 2020, the CMMC requirement was added as part of the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS). The new CMMC rules require contractors to comply and submit evidence of compliance with the controls in the National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication (NIST SP) 800-171 to the Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS). 

The challenges of implementing CMMC include creating an inventory of CUI data, understanding where your CUI data actually resides and creating a CMMC compliant system boundary.
