Topic: CMMC 2.0

Presented By: Parabilis

We once again have seen amendments to CMMC, and with the rollout of version 2.0 we have a structure that is almost unrecognizable from the original proposition of compliance. Our resident expert and cyber-guru, Fernando Machado, CEO of Cybersec Investments, brings us up to speed and uncovers the changes to CMMC and what it will mean to contractors of all sizes for the immediate future and going forward. This is a MUST SEE event!

Topic: CMMC

Presented By: Parabilis

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.

Topic: CMMC and NIST 800-171

Presented By: Parabilis

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.
