State of DoD Cybersecurity Regulations: DFARS / NIST / CMMC

August 12, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


This new webinar from the Cyber Collaboration Center and eResilience will explore the current state of DoD cybersecurity regulations.

Tim Williams and Larry Lieberman will provide updates on where we are today, explain where things are heading, and address some of the myths and misconceptions surrounding DFARS, NIST, CMMC and how they relate to one another.  They’ll discuss what the gaps are that companies need to be aware of, along with an overview of critical milestones that companies need to be preparing for, and strategies for mitigating the impacts and issues faced by large and small companies throughout the Defense Industrial Base.  Where should you and your suppliers currently stand with today’s DFARS to reduce your risk in meeting future CMMC certification?  How do companies ensure that their suppliers will remain eligible for new subcontract awards?   Who can be trusted to provide accurate information and guidance when there are so many different interpretations and opinions?  What kind of training are CMMC consultants and assessors receiving and how does that relate to how you prepare for certification?
