CMMC Readiness: How to Plan and Prep Your Organization Remotely


Are you feeling overwhelmed by the newly implemented CMMC requirements?

Determining what is required for obtaining a CMMC certification can feel like a daunting task for government contractors. Preparation efforts must be considered based on your current maturity, what processes and compliance factors are required to pass an audit, and become certified.
That is why we have gathered a CMMC Accreditation Body specialist and an in-house expert to break down exactly what you need to know for an upcoming audit. Our experts will give you the confidence and ability to become CMMC certified — even if you’re currently working remotely.

During this 45-minute webinar, James Goepel, Chair of the CMMC Finance Committee, and Robert Hanley, Vice President and Cyber Solutions Architect at Sabre Systems, Inc. will give you the CMMC rundown.

These experts will guide you through: 

  • Breaking Down CMMC: What CMMC is and why this certification is now a requirement for government contractors. 

  • Pulling Back the Accreditation Curtain: How the CMMC Accreditation Body assesses your organization and what that looks like behind the scenes.

  • Guide for Getting Ready: Best practices to quickly and efficiently prepare your business for auditing and accreditation.

  • Preparing Remotely: How you can still prepare for CMMC while working remotely during this uncertain time.

We’ll start with a round of welcomes and introductions, jump into a value-packed presentation, and conclude with a Q&A session where you can ask these seasoned professionals all of your burning CMMC questions.
