Virtual Summit:
Cybersecurity Compliance for Enterprise Supply Chains in the Defense Industry

The U.S. Department of Defense introduced the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program to help secure the U.S. defense industry supply chain and safeguard FCI and CUI data. Accordingly, the practices and processes outlined in CMMC signal the need for organizations that are part of the defense industrial base (DIB) to become more security conscious. 

So, how can prime contractors and their subs get ready for CMMC assessments?

Gain insights from key leaders by viewing the on-demand recording of our recent Virtual Summit, held on July 22, 2020.  Topics and speakers include:
