AtWork Leadership Series: Helping Businesses Achieve CMMC Compliance
Written by: AtWork
Hi, I’m Ron Lewis, founder and CEO of AtWork Systems. I’m launching the first in a series of conversations about topics critical to navigating your current challenges. I’m inviting you and your leadership to join in the discussion. My background includes roles as a Software architect, C-level corporate executive, and entrepreneur with over two decades delivering enterprise level technology solutions. My company builds software that helps small growing businesses run more efficiently.
CyberSecurity Threats Are Real
I’d like to begin with the countdown that’s started for government contractors to comply with a new DoD CMMC cybersecurity requirements. You must comply or run the risk of being disqualified from bidding on upcoming contracts by midyear 2020.
That means if you haven't already done so, you need to know how to prepare for the upcoming DoD contractor cybersecurity requirements.
- What is the NIST 800-171 standard and how does it link to the DOD CMMC requirements?
- How will it impact my ability to continue to support government clients?
- How do I prepare my business to be compliant with this standard? What is a correction action plan?
- What is the security capability maturity model?
- How does operating in the cloud impact my ability to achieve compliance?
- Are there solutions out there today that can accelerate my ability to achieve various levels of security capability?
OneLynk, our cloud-based SaaS ERP solution, is designed to reduce your burden by addressing most of the Level 1 and 3 requirements as part of our managed services. You can leverage our resources and infrastructure to accelerate your certification process.
To help get you started on your journey, I invite you to attend our no-cost webinar on "Rapid Business Transformation - Becoming Agile and Secure Now." at noon on July 22nd. This webinar will focus on CMMC compliance efforts and how to be ready sooner rather than later! Sponsored by Mid-Tier Advocacy.
Save the Date
The panel speakers will include Jon Williams, Partner at PilieroMazza (Legal compliance), and Armando Seay, Member Board of Directors Maryland Innovation & Security Institute (Certification Process & Timing). I will be addressing the role service providers can play in accelerating compliance achievement.
