Upcoming DFARS Cybersecurity Audits and 3rd Party Certifications: DCMA CPSR/NIST 800-171B/CMMC

July 17, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


The 10th webinar in the popular DFARS 7012 series from the Cyber Collaboration Center will provide updates on three critical new policies resulting from the DoD’s increasing emphasis on contractor cybersecurity across the supply chain:

1) The new Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) guidelines for Contractor Purchasing System Review (CPSR) audits now include instructions for auditors to review contractor compliance with DFARS 7012 and assess how prime contractors are flowing DFARS requirements down to their suppliers and tracking their supply chain compliance status.
2) The long-anticipated update to NIST 800-171 has been released in draft form. The new NIST 800-171B publication provides a set of enhanced requirements that go beyond the initial scope of 171 and include even stricter security requirements for certain types of projects.
3) New DoD efforts to establish a cybersecurity compliance certification process are underway and may impact all defense contractors, whether they are handling CDI or not.

In this Webinar, Jeffery A. White, C.P.M, CEO and founder of leading DCMA CPSR Audit Consulting firm J.A. White & Associates, will provide insight into what to expect and how to prepare for the new DCMA CPSR audits. DFARS / NIST cybersecurity compliance experts from eResilience will also share information about what’s new in the recently released draft of NIST 800-171B as well as an update on the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) compliance certification program currently being developed by DoD and how to get ready for it.

Webinar 10 topics will include:

  • How to Prepare for DCMA CPSR Cybersecurity Audits
  • Key Points from New NIST 800-171B and 800-171 Rev. 2 Draft Publications
  • What to Expect From the Emerging CMMC Cybersecurity Certification Standard

Content will be presented by Tim Williams, Technical Director at eResilience, and Jeffery A. White, C.P.M, CEO and Founder of J.A. White & Associates. Don’t miss these critical updates from industry leading experts.
