Upcoming Webinars

CMMC Level 1 Explained

Thursday, February 16th at 2pm EST


CMMC Level 1 will be required by the majority of companies in the defense industrial base (DIB). For companies needing higher CMMC Levels (2 or 3), Level 1 is the place to start.

Please join us for this informative hour to ensure you are on the right track toward CMMC Level 1 compliance.

FCI & CUI – What Is It and How to Protect It

Thursday, March 16th at 2pm EST


CMMC was developed in order to protect certain information and data related to DoD programs and contracts. The CMMC certification Level (1, 2 or 3) required is determined by what type of defense-related information your company handles. It is vital that you understand the information to be controlled and protected and, also what steps you must take to meet CMMC requirements.

Plan to join us to get a handle on the types of information to be controlled by your CMMC program.

CMMC 2.0 Update

Thursday, April 20th at 2pm EST


In 2021, the DoD announced changes to the CMMC program as “CMMC 2.0”.  In 2023, the government plans to begin rolling out the requirement for formal CMMC certification through new contractual requirements.  Soon, CMMC certification will be a requirement for all defense-related contracts.

This webinar will review the latest updates from the DoD on CMMC 2.0.  Please plan to join us.

CMMC – How to Prepare

Thursday, May 18th at 2pm EST


This year, CMMC starts to take effect.  The requirements to become CMMC certified are stringent and can take significant effort and expense.  Due to the extensive assessment criteria, your company will need to be well-prepared for successful certification.

In this session, we will walk through a roadmap for preparing for CMMC certification, and we’ll be discussing how to get organized in your preparation for CMMC certification.  Please join us for this very practical conversation.

Conducting a CMMC Self-Assessment

Thursday, June 15th at 2pm EST


To avoid wasting time and money as you prepare for CMMC certification, it is important to understand your starting point.  A self-assessment is a great tool that can reveal your organization’s strengths and gaps that need to be closed.

The challenges with a self-assessment are to have a good understanding of what is required and how well your systems and operational practices match up.  We’ll be walking through a self-assessment together in this session.

Join us for this hands-on session to help you get started on your self-assessment.

How to Prepare a CMMC System Security Plan

Thursday, July 20th at 2pm EST


One of the central documents needed for CMMC certification is your System Security Plan (SSP).  This detailed document spells out how each of the 110 requirements of NIST SP 800-171 (the foundational CMMC standard) are being met by your organization.  Your SSP will be one of the first things a CMMC assessor will review for certification and it needs to be done right.

This webinar will explain how to build a comprehensive SSP that addresses all of the requirements for CMMC Certification. We’ll be looking inside this foundational CMMC document that can make or break your assessment.  Please plan to join us.

The Heavy Lift of CMMC – Documentation

Thursday, August 17th at 2pm EST


To successfully pass a CMMC assessment, you’ll not only need to have the right technologies and follow the right processes, but you’ll have to show your compliance through documentation.  The CMMC assessors have been trained that “if it’s not documented, it doesn’t exist”.  Proper documentation will be one of the major focuses during your CMMC assessment.

In addition to a System Security Plan (SSP), you’ll also need to have policies, diagrams and numerous evidence artifacts to show during your assessment.  In this webinar, we’ll lay out a plan to properly document your CMMC program.

Join us as we look through the various documents that need to be put in place to successfully pass a CMMC assessment.

How to Keep CMMC Affordable

Thursday, September 21st at 2pm EST


For most small businesses, CMMC can become a significant cost in time and money.  While it might be considered a cost of doing business with the DoD or prime defense contractors, the ROI can quickly dwindle unless the most affordable options are investigated.  This includes various technology alternatives as well as the most efficient processes.

In this webinar, we’ll be discussing the costs associated with CMMC certification and where the biggest savings can be found. 

Please join us as we discuss practical ways to save money on your CMMC certification investment.

CMMC With No IT Staff

Thursday, October 19th at 2pm EST


One thing is very apparent with CMMC, it is very technical and will require a high degree of technical skill to do it properly.  But, many small businesses don’t have a dedicated IT staff, or their IT team has no hands-on experience with meeting technical standards.  How can a business with limited or no IT staff achieve CMMC certification?

In this session, our team will explain the technical resources and skills needed to prepare for a CMMC certification. 

Join this informative session as we discuss the “IT skills-gap” common to so many small businesses.

CMMC Assessments – What to Expect

Thursday, November 16th at 2pm EST


To become CMMC Level 2 certified, you’ll need to pass a CMMC assessment by a 3rd-party assessment company called a C3PAO.  CMMC assessments are highly detailed and require demonstrable evidence that you meet each of the NIST SP 800-171 controls.  In order to be certified, all 320 control objectives must be met.

In this session we’ll be pulling back the curtain on a CMMC assessment.  Join us as we peek into the details of a CMMC assessment to help you be well-prepared.
