  • Evolving threats. SolarWinds is just the latest example of the escalation in nation-state cyberattacks you need to be aware of.
  • Evolving law. Stay up to date on SPRS submittal of NIST 800-171 assessment, third-party validation of CMMC compliance prior to contract award, the False Claims Act, and the potential loss of DoD revenue.
  • Evolving scope. Take a closer look at the CMMC-AB roadmap and adoption of CMMC in other federal organizations beyond the DoD.
