Fed Talks podcast series

Fed Talks is a series of audio episodes featuring current issues in government contracting, offering thoughtful, bite-sized insights with rotating guests from inside and outside Baker Tilly.

On  this episode of  Fed Talks,  we discuss the recent changes to  the Department of Defense’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)  with subject matter specialist Matt Gilbert.  Questions addressed include:  

  • What is CMMC 2.0 and what are some of the key features of this new model? 
  • How does the removal of the process  requirement  affect  contractors?
  • What  should  contractors  do today as they await additional guidance on CMMC  2.0? 

Connect with us to hear more from our government contractor advisory team.
