Topic: Government Contracting
In November, the Department of Defense introduced us to “CMMC 2.0”, the latest piece of the DoD’s puzzle to improve cybersecurity practices in the country’s supply chain. As we start the new year, we thought it would be helpful to bring back Fernando Machado to share the latest changes in CMMC 2.0 and demonstrate how contractors can accurately scope their environments for a CMMC level 1 self-assessment. As you may remember, Fernando is a CMMC Provisional Assessor and Candidate CMMC 3rd Party Assessment Organization and recently recognized by POTOS with the “President’s Volunteer Service Award” for his work with the CMMC-AB Standards Industry Working Group. If Federal Contracting is on your radar, you can’t ignore CMMC… you have to embrace it and this event will be a great place to dive in, reset and get going for 2022.

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: Florida SBDC at UWF – Pensacola
Topic: Government Contracting
The Department of Defense’s new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) requirements continue to evolve and there are many questions about their application. For instance, new DFARS rules have taken effect and have an immediate impact on certain small businesses. This presentation will provide an overview of the CMMC, discuss the three new DFARS rules, and provide several scenarios to further explain how these new requirements will apply to your business. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation. If you currently work with or plan to work with the DoD, you don’t want to miss this great learning opportunity!
