If your organization participates in DoD contracts and is currently subject to NIST 800-171 self-attestation requirements, you won’t want to miss this fresh, fast-moving conversation.

The DoD’s CMMC program is moving steadily and unavoidably forward. Suppliers of all sizes across the DIB need to be ready for this new certification program, which will supplant the current NIST 800-171 self-attestation regime at an accelerating pace.

How fast will the transition happen? What organizations will it impact first? How will suppliers’ information security requirements change in the interim?

To help SMB subcontractors and other suppliers to DoD prime contractors understand what they need to do to prepare for CMMC, and how much time they have to do it, the latest episode of The Virtual CISO Podcast from Pivot Point Security features Stuart Itkin, VP of Products and Marketing for Exostar, a secure collaboration and supply chain management service provider that is uniquely critical and connected across the entire DIB.

Hosting the podcast, as always, is Pivot Point Security’s CISO and Managing Partner, John Verry. John has a wealth of experience helping companies that process sensitive government data comply with regulatory mandates like NIST 800-171, CMMC and FedRAMP.

If your organization participates in DoD contracts and is currently subject to NIST 800-171 self-attestation requirements, you won’t want to miss this fresh, fast-moving conversation. Topics you’ll hear about include:

  • What the CMMC rollout will look like for DoD suppliers, including the timetable and roadmap
  • How CMMC compliance expands on today’s NIST 800-171 requirements
  • What it means to be “audit-ready”—and how the DoD plans to ramp up NIST 800-171 enforcement
  • When your business needs to be CMMC compliant
  • What Exostar does and why you should care
