NIST 800-171 Case Study: Surviving a DoD Audit
By completing this form, I consent to receiving calls, texts and/or emails from CyberSheath regarding services and programs.
Go behind the scenes through a defense contractor's journey from 35% compliance to a successful audit and "low-risk rating" by the DoD.
A New England based defense contractor delivering design and development of critical systems to aid a broad range of defense and intelligence applications urgently recognized the need for compliance with DFARS 252.204-7012, NIST 800-171 and eventually Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC).
It is a familiar story, understaffed, over tooled, and trying to keep up with the regulatory whiplash of doing business with the Department of Defense (DoD). What does success even look like? How can I partner with a Managed Services provider to deliver measurable outcomes that ensure compliance? Finally, a webinar that goes beyond the “what” and details the “how” of compliance using a real world case study.
During this webinar, you will learn:
- What major initiatives propelled this contractor toward compliance
- How to prioritize POA&Ms to achieve the greatest ROI
- How an MSSP can be a force multiplier to speed your journey
- Strategy for leveraging NIST 800-171 audit success towards CMMC
CMMC is here – go beyond templates and policy documents to get a glimpse of what total success and compliance looks like as measured by a successful customer audit.
