Cybersecurity: it feels like an endless summer, doesn’t it? For those doing business with the DoD, new regulatory waves keep coming, leaving contractors in a riptide of DFARS cybersecurity compliance.
Keeping your head above water requires an informed cybersecurity strategy, now more than ever. Join Steel Root, experts in cybersecurity and DFARS compliance, for a discussion with Alex Major, co-leader of the Government Contracts and Export Controls group at McCarter & English on how contractors who may be treading water can learn how to pop up and catch the next wave of cybersecurity compliance.
Participants will learn about:
- The DoD’s new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program. As early as 2021, every prime and subcontractor on a DoD supply chain may need to be audited and certified under CMMC. We’ll parse out what is known about the evolving program and offer strategies for how to prepare for the changes.
- Strategies for achieving and maintaining DFARS 252.204-7012 compliance in the context of changing regulatory and market forces.
- Why NIST compliance is likely not a high enough standard for DoD contractors.
- Bridging the IT gap with practical tips for compliance readiness and cyber resiliency.
