Who: Smithers and Defense Cybersecurity Group
Smithers and guest presenter Vincent Scott, CEO, of Defense Cybersecurity Group, team up for this informative one-hour session on the Documentation Requirements for CMMC (Certification).
The new Department of Defense (DoD) Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is rolling out as a requirement for all DoD contractors. The DoD has maintained technical cybersecurity requirements for years but with no enforcement. CMMC includes required certification and re-certification every three years by independent assessors. This significantly raises the bar for not only implementing strong cybersecurity technical controls but also having a strong set of documentation that can support these assessments. During this webinar, we walk through the basics of CMMC and discuss things companies should be documenting to support their upcoming assessments.
The foundation of any strong certification program is documentation, and CMMC is no different. From processes and procedures to written policies and continual improvement plans, thorough documentation helps organizations to build upon their structure and supporting components. For cybersecurity proper and vigilant documentation can support risk decisions, resource acquisition, and what technology is utilized.
An interactive Q&A session follows the presentation.
