What DoD contractors need to know about the DFARS Interim Rule and Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification to win DoD contracts.

About this Event

Brought to you by the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development, and the Procurement Technical Assistance Center – PTAC

The Defense Department released its interim rule instructing Department of Defense (DoD) contractors on how to comply with cybersecurity guidelines in September. On 30 November 2020, those new rules went into effect, requiring some level of verifiable compliance prior to award. Many companies still have questions about what they should do and when.

This webinar was put together to help DoD contractors quickly understand the new rules and how best to prepare for them. First, we’ll briefly summarize what the interim rule change does and how it will affect business moving forward. Next, we’ll review the requirements for all DoD contractors, and how to determine which applies to you. Finally, we’ll discuss the options to satisfy those requirements and their associated costs.

What we’ll be covering:

  • A high-level overview of the DFARS Interim Rule
  • A comparison of Basic vs. CMMC Maturity Level 1 (ML1)
  • How to successfully and affordably prepare to meet DFARS requirements
