2020 is an inflection point in cybersecurity for the Federal Government. With the development of long-awaited Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), prime and sub-contractors are now subject to requirements that will stick. It’s no longer enough to have a security plan, a playbook, and an outsourced vendor or make a claim to have CUI covered in a “secure” environment. Come mid-2020 when audits begin defense contractors will be on the hook for certification; by late-2020 making it a requirement for certification in order to bid on new contracts.

In this webinar, NeoSystems will take a deeper dive into what this looks like.  We’ll unpack the basic yet intricate certification levels and controls and articulate the nuts and bolts of getting organizations pre-audit ready.
