CMMC: Unraveled

  • Room: Estes B
Thursday, August 17, 2023: 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM

On September 27, 2022, the Cyber Accreditation Body (Cyber AB) invited the Defense Management Contract Agency (DCMA) Defense Industrial Base Cybersecurity Assessment Center (DIBCAC) as a special guest to their monthly Town Hall event. DIBCAC Supervisory IT Cybersecurity Specialist Nicholas DelRosso gave a presentation on the top 10 ‘Other than Satisfied’ requirements in which contractors, both large and small, in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) have commonly failed.

My presentation, “CMMC: Unraveled”, will go into detail on common NIST SP 800-171 pitfalls, DoD Assessment Methodology pitfalls, DFARS 252.204-7012 pitfalls, top five 'Other than Satisfied' requirement pitfalls, and what your assessor will be looking for.

My presentation will provide potential solutions to each of these areas to bring clarity and understanding on how contractors can avoid these pitfalls when preparing their respective environments. Additionally, the audience will be engaged via ‘Who Wants to Be A Millionaire’ formatted questions as we progress through the presentation to foster participation and not just be ‘another CMMC presentation’.

Lastly, I will give a brief overview of the NIST SP 800-171 revision 3 initial public draft timeline, a brief overview of a control set, and my top five key takeaways that contractors should know.
