CMMC - Complying with the New DoD NIST SP 800-171 Self-Assessment and Reporting Requirements

The DoD’s recently issued interim rule 48 CFR Parts 204, 212, 217, and 252, which amended DFARS, compels contractors to adhere to DoD prescribed cybersecurity requirements. This interim rule went into effect November 30 and implements both the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800–171 DoD Assessment Methodology and the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Framework.

This webinar will provide attendees an overview of the new DoD Assessment Methodology requirements (110 individual cybersecurity practices) and guidance on how to score and report assessment results.  It will also discuss how contractors are to document and respond to the DoD regarding control gaps disclosed as a result of the assessment as part of their System Security Plan (SSP).
BPX offers services that assist contractors meet all requirements. 
Specific to the  Assessment Methodology, DoD contractors are required to assess and score their cybersecurity control practices and enter their resulting summary scores into the Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS). Additionally, contractors are required to establish and maintain a System Security Plan (SSP). In turn, the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) will perform audits of contractors to assess compliance with the requirements. Understanding the requirements of NIST SP 800-171 and accurately completing the assessment, calculating the summary score, and establishing the SSP can be both confusing and daunting to contractors.

In addition, other matters that will be covered in the webinar include ISO 27001 - Information Security Management certification and its applicability to accounting firms and other professional service organizations and SOC suite of services.
