With the Department of Defense (DoD) ramping up its focus on cybersecurity for the supply chain, manufacturers will need to prove compliance with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) to continue doing business with DoD. The CMMC, released in early 2020, is a tiered cybersecurity program required for all DoD contractors (both prime and subcontractors) and will build upon existing regulation in the DFARS 252.204-7012, adding audits to assure compliance with cybersecurity standards. This event is specifically designed to assist Northwest Manufactures with an overview of the CMMC and actionable steps your organization can take to comply with these standards to keep and win more defense business.

 What you will Learn:

  • Best practices in including cybersecurity as part of an overall risk management plan
  • Review of the 17-areas covered in CMMC - what each area covers and what you should be asking your IT staff, operational managers, and third-party vendors to assure compliance  
  • Preparing for your CMMC Audit

 Who should attend:

This event is designed for management and operational staff from small to mid-size manufactures in the defense supply chain, and will focus on the CMMC levels 2-4.
