The current DFARS require compliance with the NIST 800-171 standard.  So, a reasonable question is how does CMMC relate to NIST 800-171 and vice versa.  In our second webinar “Differences between NIST 800-171 and CMMC – the Value of Finishing NIST 800-171” we will be addressing the key differences between the existing DFARS NIST 800-171 compliance platform as it compares directly to the specified levels of the new CMMC standard.  Key controls, practices and levels will be addressed in detail and tips and techniques for preparing your company for these rigorous testing and auditing challenges will be offered.
