This training has been designed for all individuals regardless of their technological background.

If you contract or subcontract with the Department of Defense (DoD), you should know that you are required to comply with minimum cybersecurity standards that were added to the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) a few years ago.

Many contractors have found these regulations difficult to understand and implement, and some owners of small businesses that provide goods and services to the DoD even erroneously assumed that the regulations did not apply to them because they were too small, they were a subcontractor, or they didn’t realize how malicious actors could use their company to breach security. Because compliance with cybersecurity standards within the defense industrial base is not where DoD wants it to be, they are switching from self-certification to third-party certification. This new certification program is called the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC).

This webinar will introduce you to CMMC and focus on what is required to achieve Level 1 certification, which is the minimum that will be required for DoD contractors. It will include tips on how to guard against low-tech penetration methods, such as tailgating, badge copying, and USB dropping, through continuous monitoring, training, and vigilance.

Agenda for Cyber-YOU: Project Spectrum’s CMMC Preparedness Training (Level I)

  1. Introduction and Overview of Montana PTAC Services
  2. CMMC vs. NIST and DFARS
    1. What is Project Spectrum?
    2. What is CMMC?
    3. Why is CMMC different?
  3. Five Levels of CMMC
    1. Practices & Processes 
    2. Focused Security Levels
  4. Cybersecurity Failures
  5. CMMC Facts
  6. Domains at Level 1
    1. Access Control (AC)
    2. Identification & Authentication (IA)
    3. Media Protection (MP)
    4. Physical Protection (PE)
    5. Systems & Communications Protection (SC)
    6. System & Information Integrity (SI)

This training has been developed by Project Spectrum, an initiative of the DoD Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP). The Project Spectrum initiative has three primary objectives:

  1. To enhance cybersecurity awareness within the Defense Industrial Base (DIB)
  2. To increase cyber capabilities and mitigate vulnerabilities
  3. To train small businesses and manufacturers that must comply with the proposed CMMC standards
