Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, NDIA New England will unfortunately not be having its popular annual DoD cybersecurity compliance event this year. As an alternative, we will be hosting a series of virtual cocktail and lunch hours following each of the four upcoming NDIA Cybersecurity and CMMC Implementation Webinars. Each of our virtual cocktail and lunch hours will feature nationally recognized legal and technical experts from McCarter & English, Steel Root, DGC, UMass Lowell Research Institute and TSI. Our experts Ryan Heidorn, Nick DeLena, Dan Kelly and Alex Major will provide their take on the updates provided by Government officials in the webinars and give practical advice on implementation and compliance with the most recent rules. This is your opportunity to get your questions answered on this dynamic and important topic. There is no cost to attend and all are welcome. NDIA New England looks forward to raising a glass with you and talking cyber! Please join us!

NDIA Cybersecurity and CMMC Implementation Tabletop Series Webinar 3: Pre-Award Process

January 29th =, 2021 10:00 – 11:30 am EDT

With the introduction of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program, contractors must ensure that their systems are in compliance with all requirements of the applicable CMMC cybersecurity level. Through a series of 90-minute tabletop exercises, we will follow a fictional company as it navigates the CMMC certification process and its compliance with the FAR and DFARS requirements for flow down, reporting, investigation, and mitigation. Our second tabletop exercise will focus on the contractor’s path to award and contract performance. To facilitate the discussion, we will include panel members from the CMMC Advisory Board, DoD and GSA government procurement and information security, as well as large and small prime and subcontractor representatives from the Defense Industrial Base. During the tabletop exercise, attendees will participate in the scenario through polling and will have the opportunity to raise questions about implementation.

Secure your complimentary registration to ensure your attendance of this series’ Webinar 3: Pre-Award Process on January 29th, 2021, from 10:00 – 11:30 am EST. This is the third webinar in our new four-part Cybersecurity and CMMC Implementation Tabletop Series.

About the Tabletop Series

With the introduction of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program, contractors must ensure that their systems are in compliance with all requirements of the interim DFARS rule and/or the applicable CMMC cybersecurity level. Through a series of 90-minute tabletop exercises, we have been following a fictional company as it navigates the CMMC certification process and its compliance with the FAR and DFARS requirements for flow down, reporting, investigation, and mitigation. Our third tabletop exercise will focus on the identification of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), including whether it is Controlled Technical Information (CTI) or government or contractor CUI information, and triggers for Basic Assessment and CMMC requirements on the path to award and contract performance. To facilitate the discussion, we will include panel members from the Office of the Secretary of Defense (Intelligence & Sustainment), National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), as well as representatives from the Defense Industrial Base. During the tabletop exercise, attendees will participate in the scenario through polling and will have the opportunity to raise questions about implementation.
