Speakers: Alfredo G. Fernández

2020 is a big year in cybersecurity requirements for supply chain companies doing business with the Department of Defense (DoD).  The U.S. Commercial Service invites you to join Alfredo Fernandez as he advises government and defense contractors to ensure readiness for the important upcoming DoD cybersecurity requirements.

Earlier this year, DoD released the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), which requires every prime and subcontractor to have their cybersecurity controls audited and certified in order to be eligible for new defense contracts. CMMC will require companies to implement cybersecurity controls to protect their data and networks.

Participants will learn:

  • What to expect from the new CMMC program and how to prepare;
  • Differences and similarities of CMMC and NIST SP 800-171;
  • How the DFARS 252.204-7012 rule may change to incorporate CMMC and a new cybersecurity confidence rating system; and
  • Recent changes in ITAR encryption controls and how it affects exporters generally and with CMMC specifically.
