Background: CMMC certification, which is based on a third-party assessment of the contractor’s cybersecurity hygiene and maturity, allows for an independent, impartial review before contract award.

This presentation provides an update on the latest news and changes to the CMMC ecosystem along with providing lessons learned from an actual CMMC assessment for certification.
