Cybersecurity for Small Business Webinar:
New DoD Requirements for Contractors

Join Defense Alliance and Beryllium InfoSec Collaborative for a webinar geared towards small business:  ”Cybersecurity for Small Business – New DoD Requirements for Contractors.” 

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) became official in late January 2020. If you are a business that does work with the Department of Defense (DoD), you will need to be CMMC certified in order to be awarded new business in the near future. The cybersecurity landscape for defense contractors continues to evolve, and keeping up with the changes is vital.  This workshop will focus on preparing your business for the CMMC certifications,  in order to continue having success as a DoD contractor or subcontractor.
