The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment (OUSD(A&S)) is working to secure Controlled Unclassified Information by requiring vendors serving the Defense Department to be certified at one of five levels. The Cyber Maturity Model Certification may have broader ramifications as it may become a standard for all third-party vendor relationships.

This presentation will discuss this certification, the frameworks used in designing it, the levels of certification in detail and some of the tools that can be used to assess your organizations overall cyber maturity level including the use of the CMMI’s Cyber Maturity Tool.

We will also exam the Microsoft Azure Blueprint for NIST SP 800-171 compliance to understand control ownership under IAAS and PAAS for cloud-based applications.
