In partnership with Exostar, TSI held a successful webinar on the topic of "Creating and Managing a Sustainable CMMC Compliance Program". Our webinar was recorded HERE, allowing you to get an understanding of our approach to helping businesses to achieve and maintain a successful cybersecurity program toward CMMC compliance. Furthermore, we have addressed topics such as policy development and documentation, IT CMMC requirements, engaging with CMMC 3 certificate ready RPO/Service Providers (MSPs/MSSPs), implementing time-lines, and contractual considerations as well as considering DoD timelines.
