Cybersecurity (CMMC) Update Q&A | PTAC Virtual Coffee & Connect Series

Wednesday, September 23, 2020 10:00am to 11:00am

Get the latest information on the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) rollout.

Contractors and subcontractors interested in contracting with the DOD must certify through this new platform, even if they do not handle Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).

General Information

Cyber-attacks disrupt business operations and put intellectual property and sensitive information at risk. The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) streamlines previous standards and best practices into one guideline that encompasses maturity levels, from basic to advanced, across all federal acquisition processes.


This unified framework was released by the Department of Defense (DoD) in January 2020. Since then an updated version was issued and some challenges and setbacks have been identified. Join us to review the current status, required preparations, and next steps in government contracting cybersecurity.

Webinar Topics Include:

  • Overview of CMMC requirements for businesses.
  • Timeline of business certifications
  • Key business preparations to ensure compliance
  • Q & A
