Location – Intercontentinal San Diego

In Person and Virtual Seats can be purchased here

Topic: CMMC Industry Days and Modern Information Security Topics

The Cloud Security and Compliance Series (CS2) is strictly for government contractors and those in higher education research institutions looking to meet cybersecurity regulations, address security threats, and glean best practices for their cloud investments.

Join us in San Diego, CA, at the International Hotel, or virtually for this ongoing information series to cover best practices for CMMC, DFARS 7012/7019/7020/7021, NIST 800-171 compliance, CUI and ITAR data management, Assessment Preparations, and other cloud security topics.  
The greatest hurdle for contractors and those conducting DoD research in higher education is transforming their information systems for compliance by moving off of legacy infrastructures. This is the first venture into cloud technologies for many companies, and the security landscape for advanced persistent threats is ever-changing. 

NOTE: This event will be a “hybrid” format, meaning there will be both in-person seats, as well as virtual seats

Facilitated by:  Parabilis

Topic: CMMC

Cyber Security is in every conversation concerning federal contracting these days. Standards are changing, and with the changes, government contractors will have to be mindful of deadlines and benchmarks over the next 3 years. For now, the DoD is leading the charge on upgrading regulatory compliance, however, several other agencies are following suit with their own updates to process and procedure regarding the handling of controlled unclassified information (CUI).

For the layperson, this can seem like a bit of a mess with the lack of consistency across agencies, and an ever-changing environment. To keep you informed, we are chatting with our industry expert on the subject, Fernando Machado, to hash out what we do know to be true, fixed deadlines, and establishing a plan for certification. CMMC isn’t going away, it’s pressing on, and we are here to help you map out your pathway in a reasonable and cost-effective way.

August 6, 2021 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM EST –Webinar – Watch On Demand 

Facilitated by:  Parabilis

Topic: CMMC and NIST 800-171

With deadlines on the horizon, we wanted to keep our clients and constituents “in the know” as it pertains to cybersecurity compliance. If you are a defense contractor and have a current Enhanced Joint Certification (JCP) you must post your NIST SP 800-171 score in the Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS) by August 16th or be locked out of the site. If you do not currently have a contract award with the DoD, per the DFARS 252.204-7019 clause, you will need to submit a Basic Assessment to the SPRS site to be considered for upcoming awards.

So, what does this mean for you?

If you miss this deadline, you will need to submit your SPRS score in order to regain access. Do so with caution, because if your score is deemed inaccurate or misleading, you could potentially be in violation of the False Claims Act. So, it is best to seek assistance from a cyber professional for any part of this compliance.

 

Why miss out on completing your contract or future award opportunities? Watch our complete discussion to get informed on this deadline and more regarding upcoming cyber regulatory compliance and CMMC!
