DoD CMMC Assessment Webinar

Please mark your calendar and join us on Wednesday January 20, 2021 at 4:00 PM ET for our DFARS Cybersecurity Webinar Series #16: “Complying with the DoD Assessment Methodology and DIBCAC Assessment Process” featuring John A. Ellis of the DCMA.

Free registration is now available at

As you may be aware, new DFARS Interim Rules went into effect in December 2020.  Now, contractors who handle Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) must conduct self-assessments of NIST 800-171 compliance status in accordance with NIST 800-171A assessment guidance; score themselves on a subtractive, weighted formula as prescribed by the DoD Assessment Methodology scoring system; and report their scores and expected POAM completion dates to the government through the Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS) in order to remain eligible to win new contract awards that involve handling CUI.

In addition, the DCMA’s Defense Industrial Base Cybersecurity Assessment Center (DIBCAC) will be conducting more detailed Medium and High confidence assessments at the government’s discretion. In this webinar, John A. Ellis, Director of the DCMA’s Technical Directorate, will provide key information that all defense contractors should understand about what is required, what to expect, and how to prepare for the DoD Assessment Methodology and DIBCAC assessment process. Cybersecurity compliance experts from eResilience will also share best practices for prime contractors and subcontractors to assist in navigating compliance challenges.

If your organization needs more information about how to successfully meet the new requirements under the DoD Assessment Methodology and how to minimize supply chain cyber compliance risk, don’t miss this valuable educational event!
