Topic: So, You Think You're Ready for a CMMC L2 Assessment?
Speakers: Joy Beland, Amira Armond  
There are many different versions of “ready” when it comes to CMMC Level 2 Assessments by a C3PAO.  Depending on the guidance you have received from an RP, PA, CCP Candidate, internal SME, external consultant, or just being self-taught, how ready you think you are vs. how ready you REALLY are can be a moving target.

In this workshop we will use the following readiness components as your guidepost on the CMMC Readiness journey.  We will provide a workbook with guidance in each segment, as we help you answer:

  • Can you defend the scope you have presented with documentation of where CUI is stored and transmitted in your network?  Will your boundaries stand up to the assessor’s criteria? 
  • If you use an External Service Provider like a MSP (Managed Service Provider) or MSSP (Managed Security Service Provider), do they know what evidence they need to bring to the assessment?  Are you defining their role in a way that the assessor will accept?  
  • If you use Cloud Service Providers to store, process or transmit CUI, do you have the right “Body of Evidence” available for review? 
  • What are the three proofs showing that you are using FIPS 140-2 validated modules correctly?
  • Are there tips for assessment preparation so that your team shows competence and doesn’t say the wrong thing?
  • If the assessment team sends one or more assessors onsite, what are common mistakes that they will look for? 
  • Is there a way to format your POA&M to show “Enhancements” that will not indicate a failure on any CMMC Level 2 practices?
We promise you a high knowledge value session.
