CMMC for SMBs: Affordable Compliance Strategies

CMMC for SMBs: Affordable Compliance Strategies

Wednesday, July 24
2PM - 3PM ET

Learn how you can achieve Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) compliance without breaking the bank in this expert-led webinar, featuring guest speaker, Bridget Wilson, SVP of Governance Risk and Compliance at Network Coverage. 

Implementing CMMC affordably begins with careful scoping and developing an initial organization-specific perimeter definition. The controls and processes designed to fulfill NIST SP 800-171 and CMMC requirements serve a single, simple-sounding purpose: control and protect the flow of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). This means the entirety of your organization’s physical footprint and soft assets may not be inside the perimeter, reducing the scope and allowing for more economical CMMC solutions.  

Join us for a webinar where you will learn more about: 

  • Identifying and Assessing CUI: To begin that scoping and design evaluation, you must first identify which files obtained or created in the service of a DoD contract are defined as CUI. The CMMC 2.0 framework does promise to label CUI in contract documents when the rule is final. It is also useful to think about who at your organization accesses CUI and how they access it.  
  • Evaluating Solutions: When deciding on solutions and defining budgets, it is important to understand the methods of correspondence that will be used with contracting officers and in service of the contract, from estimating to project inception and sign-off. 
  • CUI Enclave Options: We’ll unpack several implementation models and discuss scenarios that determine the suitability of CUI enclave designs specific to small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) within the Defense Industrial Base (DIB)—all with a focus on efficiency and affordability. 

The Department of Defense (DoD) has stated the cost of CMMC implementation and certification will not be prohibitive. This is extremely important to understand as you consider whether compliance expenses will exceed revenue from DoD subcontracts. Register for the webinar to learn how to secure compliance and retain your contracts while saving time and resources.
