About. The theft of intellectual property and sensitive information from all industrial sectors due to malicious cyber activity threatens economic security and national security. The Center for strategic and International Studies estimates that the total global cost of cybercrime was as high as $600 billion in 2017.

Malicious cyber actors continue to target the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) sector and the supply chain of the Department of Defense (DoD). The DIB sector consists of over $300,000 companies that support the warfighter and contribute to the operations of DoD systems, networks, installations, capabilities and services. The aggregate loss of intellectual property and certain unclassified information from the DoD supply chain can undercut U.S. technical advantages and innovation as well as significantly increase risk to national security.

To enhance the protection of unclassified information, the DoD developed the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework. CMMC will be included in select RFIs in 2020, and by January of 2026 all DoD solicitations will include the CMMC requirement. The CMMC Accreditation Body suggests that all businesses in the DoD supply chain begin preparing for certification to CMMC now.

Registration.  Online registration is closed.
