CMMC: How to confirm readiness

Proper preparation is paramount to the success of a Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) assessment. How can you ensure you are ready? Join Baker Tilly CMMC professionals to review the planning required for success. We will share lessons learned from our experience helping organizations prepare for CMMC and the government 800-171 assessments performed by the Defense Industrial Base Cyber Assessment Center (DIBCAC), known as DIBCAC High.

We will discuss:

  • What to consider as you organize and prepare for your assessment
  • How to prepare to share information and anticipate questions from your assessment team
  • Who to include from your team to speak to the assessors
  • Tips to handle a disagreement with your assessor
