Understand the changes, anticipate new requirements, and learn how your business can smoothly transition to the updated standards. Prerequisite: CMMC 2.0 (see prior webinar recordings)

Cybersecurity Essentials

Description: Dive into the critical digital tools that form the cybersecurity backbone for small enterprises. This session demystifies the technical jargon and focuses on practical, accessible solutions that provide robust protection without complexity.

CMMC Level 1 Explained

Description:  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.

FCI + CUI: What is it and How to Protect it

Description:  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.

CMMC 2.0 Update

Description:  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.

Conducting a CMMC Self-Assessment

Description: 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.

How to Prepare a CMMC System Security Plan

Description: 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. 

The Heavy Lift of CMMC: Documentation

Description: 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.

How to Keep CMMC Affordable

Description: 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 discuss the costs associated with CMMC certification and where the biggest savings can be found.

CMMC With No IT Staff

Description:  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 explains the technical resources and skills needed to prepare for a CMMC certification. 

CMMC Assessments: What to Expect

Description: 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.
