As the world of cybersecurity continues to evolve at lightning speed, the U.S. Government has ramped up efforts to stay ahead of threats from worldwide adversaries.  Given the interconnections with industry and academia, the USG has to rely on contractors and subcontractors to effectively manage their own security systems and risks to protect U.S. information.  In order to ensure effective compliance, these cyber requirements are now mandatory in many government contracts and grants.  Through the FAR and DFARS,  government contractors and their subcontractors are subject to different compliance regimes, each requiring layers and levels of IT security.  This session will focus on contract compliance for Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST): NIST 800-171 and Federal Information Systems Act (FISMA), as implemented by NIST 800-53.
