Implementing Zero Trust Into Your CMMC Strategy

In this webinar you will learn:

  • Where a zero trust approach is applicable within the CMMC framework
  • Ways to evaluate how to align your zero trust approach and CMMC requirements
  • How recently updated government guidelines impact CMMC planning

Earlier this year, the Department of Defense (DoD) introduced the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework, which consists of five maturity levels across 17 capability domains encompassing 43 capabilities. This past May, President Biden signed a cybersecurity Executive Order focused on improving federal security practices, including an emphasis on cloud computing and Zero Trust (ZT) security controls and requiring agencies to come up with a cloud and ZT architecture plan within 90 days.  

With so many requirements to meet, outlined in many different directives, and with looming deadlines, the pressure is on to gather as much information as possible to comply with these orders, implement the framework in your agency/organization, and embark on a zero trust security approach.

Building on our discussion from part one of our CMMC series, join Duo and Cisco Advisory CISO Helen Patton and Cisco Senior Federal Strategist Andrew Stewart as they guide you through an outline of the recent Executive Order, another look at CMMC requirements, how zero trust is pivotal in both, and how you can continue your zero trust journey with Duo Security’s help.
