The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) rolls out later this year, which will affect both homeland security and the defense industrial base. The certification schema challenges industry with many issues and opportunities, both known and unknown. This symposium unpacks the model to aid industry in understanding how their contracting strategies will change. Presenters include agency leaders developing the CMMC as well as industry representatives who have implemented NIST SP 800-171 and related cybersecurity control standards.

Don't miss this chance to prepare for the CMMC!


Who should attend:

  • Small Business executives who must understand how CMMC will shape their federal opportunities for growth
  • Corporate contract managers and attorneys who must understand how to ensure their contract commitments will be satisfied without risk of penalties or contract losses
  • Capture managers who need to know how to differentiate their proposals from the competition and to shape future federal work

Note: The agenda is currently under development. While the planning committee expects to fill the majority of speaking roles, there may be very limited opportunities for industry participants. If you are interested in submitting a panelist for consideration, you may forward a name and bio, and someone from the planning committee will be in touch if there is a need.
