Topic: IT Policies and Documentation - What You Need to Get Started for CMMC
Whether you are building components for fighter jets or doing landscaping for a Naval base, the DoD is taking a closer look at the cybersecurity lapses in its supply chain, specifically, leakage of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and Controlled Defense Information (CDI).
The Department has introduced Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), that requires every defense contractor, and its supplier, to get cybersecurity readiness certification from accredited auditors.
The first step to becoming compliant with new mandates is to make sure every supplier has properly structured IT policies in place to comply with the 17 control families outlined in NIST SP 800-171. Many businesses struggle with understanding the NIST guidelines, as well as requirements contained in CMMC, and don’t have access to the proper resources begin documenting compliant IT policies. So we’d like to offer you a helping hand.
Join industry experts, who will discuss:
- How to begin gathering information that should be in IT policies
- How to structure and document IT policies
- How to run compliance checks on your current IT policies
- How to communicate and enforce IT policies in your organization
