What to Know Before the CMMC Auditor Arrives

Gain perspectives from a C3PAO, Lawyer and a CMMC Expert (RP).

With CMMC 2.0 right around the corner, many organizations are scrambling to come into compliance.  For organizations that are unfamiliar with an evidence-based assessment, they may be fearful of what the C3PAO is going to find or worse, unaware of the rigor that it requires – leading that organization to be woefully unprepared for such audit.  This panel discussion brings together the collective expertise from the perspectives of:

  • a Registered Practitioner (RP) who knows the ins-and-outs of how to comply and how to “get it done”,
  • a lawyer that specializes in organization’s FAR and DFARS obligations and understands the liability of the flow-down clauses between primes and subcontractors, and
  • a Certified CMMC Assessor (CCA) from one of the authorized CMMC Third Party Assessment Organizations (C3PAO).

Benefits of Attending:

  • Understand the value of having your CMMC Expert on-board at the time of the certification assessment,
  • Learn why organizations need to understand their liability as it pertains to their supply chain, and
  • Gain perspective from a C3PAO on what they’re going to be looking for during the certification assessment.


Attendees Will Learn:

  • What an evidence-based assessment means and what’s involved to comply,
  • The importance of having an advocate in the room that is both a CMMC master and IT expert to defend your control environment, and
  • What’s at stake if they and their subcontractors are not in compliance and/or misrepresent their compliance.
