Industry CMMC Readiness Summit

By NeoSystems


Join an alliance of leading cybersecurity and digital transformation experts who will walk through the path to CMMC and explore all aspects of the “how” to get ready for a certification. This half-day summit will run through 5 sessions that will identify tactical, actionable and affordable steps to achieve an accelerated timeline of readiness. 

We’ll explore the difference between a “security posture” and security hygiene, why DIY gap-filling and patching can potentially result in costly and time-consuming missteps, and how to reach out for trusted advisor support. 

We’ll also discuss auditor and assessor viewpoints, including news from Katie Arrington. 

Walkaway with clear, actionable steps toward CMMC readiness and a much-needed education around the future of cybersecurity and the key themes we should all be considering in 2021.
