Welcome to the i2 CMMC Webinar Channel

The i2 CMMC Webinar Channel is offering an industry-focused, online educational resource that provides up-to-date and relevant cybersecurity information regarding the deployment of the CMMC standards and requirements. This information will be shared with interested defense contracting and commercial audiences over the internet through a series of Webinars. The series is constructed to provide an Overview of the CMMC with deeper dives into required documentation and artifacts. Past webinars will be available for review via a free subscription to the Imprimis Insider located on our website.

Initially the Webinars will be offered once per month and will be 30 minutes in length with a 10-minute Q&A. As the topics become more focused, the Webinars may have varying lengths and may be offered twice per month.

 

How does the DoD’s CMMC requirements impact your business?

Over the past several years, the Department of Defense (DoD) has been rolling out new certification standards for contractors with the aim of firming-up cybersecurity protocols and helping to reduce vulnerabilities that lead to possible cyber attacks. While past regulations have included cybersecurity components, (NIST 800-53 and 800-171) the CMMC was developed specifically to address digital security concerns and provide more robust protections.
Many DoD contractors have reached out to Imprimis regarding the details of CMMC—specifically how they apply to their own business as well as the process for becoming compliant. In the past, Imprimis has been heavily invested in the NIST requirements and IT security compliance standards in general (through our i2ACT 800 Platform) and we’ve been hard at work updating our products to include the CMMC requirements and updating our complete line of Cybersecurity Compliance solutions.

Here is our Webinar Schedule and Topics for 2022:


Upcoming Webinar: (February 23, 2022)

CMMC 2.0 - Part Deux

As many of our i2 CMMC Webinar viewers, and Imprimis Insider’s know by now… it’s Back to the Future III time in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) World !
Translation: DoD Makes changes for a third time in five years to the cybersecurity DFARS when they modified the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification, (CMMC).  We are now officially on CMMC Ver 2.0. 
These changes have introduced a great deal of confusion on what has to be done today and what actions can be deferred.  Also, the scope of the assessments is not totally clear.  Self-assessment versus third-party certification needs to be understood, decided, and included in the planning horizon.
So, for our 1st i2 CMMC Webinar for 2022, (which is scheduled for Wednesday February 23rd at 10:00AM (MST) we’re going to do a comprehensive follow-up or “Part Deux” session to our CMMC 2.0 webinar we did in November 2021 to provide some updated context of the impacts these DoD changes will have on the government contracting community, and how this will affect your NIST/CMMC Assessment and Compliance activities.  The purpose is to help companies develop a plan and strategy for dealing with their cybersecurity compliance requirements which are now part of doing business with the DoD.
So, join our Cybersecurity Professionals this month on January 26th and we will provide you with an insiders “screening” to this ongoing CMMC 2.0 “B Movie” so you can recognize where the Assessment and Compliance plot changes are, as well as identify both the hero’s and the villain’s as the CMMC movie unfolds.
