How to Become a Compliance Black Belt

By Kristen Morales • May 26, 2021

The constant evolution of cybersecurity standards that must be met in order to do business with the Department of Defense (DoD) can be overwhelming. Make sure your team is capable of achieving and maintaining compliance with Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) and Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). 

 

CyberSheath’s Defense Contractor Cybersecurity Compliance Training is the Answer

The primary goal of DFARS and the CMMC is to ensure the protection of controlled unclassified information (CUI) stored in your environment. Your team can learn the skills necessary to tackle cybersecurity requirements, specifically those dealing with the identification of CUI and the steps you need to take to protect it. 

By the end of the training module, attendees will be able to:

  • Assess compliance
  • Compose an SPRS submittal
  • Create an SSP and POAM
  • Efficiently implement fixes to address compliance gaps

Course Details

Learn how to employ the necessary resources, tools, and policies for compliance. This training curriculum is comprised of five courses covering today’s DoD contractor laws. Each session is designed to teach the skills required for meeting DFARS and CMMC requirements.
