Do You Meet the DoD Cybersecurity Compliance Requirements?

As a DoD contractor, supplier, or vendor who processes Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), you must comply with the cybersecurity requirements listed in the DFARS 252.204-7012 clause.  If you don't know where to start or have limited time and cash to spend on developing a compliant cybersecurity program, WE CAN HELP!

DFARS / NIST 800-171 / CMMC

Online Workshop

Nine (9) weeks of hands-on learning from seasoned cybersecurity experts who work for a small business prime DoD contractor. They made their company compliant. Now, they can teach you how to become compliant too!

This workshop is limited to 20 participants only!

Cyber Compliance in 9 Weeks!

Totem cybersecurity experts will coach you through NIST 800-171 and CMMC compliance as you successfully complete a System Security Plan (SSP), Plan of Actions and Milestones (POA&M), and Incident Response Plan (IRP) in accordance with the DFARS 252.204-7012 regulations.

Next workshop starts on August 8, 2022.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who should attend this workshop?

  • Small to medium-size DoD contractors, suppliers, and vendors.

  • Managed Service Providers (MSPs) with clients who are DoD contractors who would like the knowledge and insight to successfully create and implement their organization’s cybersecurity processes, policies, and procedures.

What if I don't have any IT experience?

Not a problem. We take a complex topic and break it down so small business DoD contractors, without a security or IT background, can understand and comply.


What will I learn in this workshop?

  • You will understand the current DFARS 7012 requirements (NIST 800-171 controls) and future CMMC practice requirements for a DoD contractor cybersecurity program.

  • You will build a System Security Plan (SSP) as a set of “blueprints” tailored for your organization’s cybersecurity program.

  • You will generate a Plan of Actions and Milestones (POA&M) and corrective action plans to close the gaps within your system.

  • You will develop and exercise a cybersecurity Incident Response Plan for your organization.

Why should I register for this workshop?

Our virtual classroom provides the same expertise as an on-site consultant at a fraction of the cost.

Our expert cybersecurity instructors will help:

  • Translate the current DFARS 7012 requirements (NIST 800-171 controls) and future CMMC practice requirements into layman’s terms.

  • Suggest tools and technical implementations that satisfy these requirements.

  • Assist with writing and implementing appropriate cybersecurity policies.

  • Provide access to Totem’s compliance software so your organization doesn’t have to create its own tracking system.

What is the workshop schedule?

The workshop will run from August 8th to October 7th.


Every Monday, we'll have a live webinar covering a specific topic. After the webinar, we'll post the recording in the virtual classroom along with a related homework assignment. 


Every Friday, the workshop participants will meet virtually with the instructor for a Q&A Session. We'll record these Q&A Sessions and make them available on-demand in the virtual classroom. 

What if I have to miss a webinar or a Q&A session?

If you miss a live webinar, you can still get caught up by watching the recording. We'll post it in the virtual classroom after the webinar. 


We do, however, encourage you to attend all Q&A sessions. These meetings offer a valuable opportunity to ask questions and engage with other workshop participants. If you can't make it to one or more Q&A sessions, you can review what you missed by watching the recording.
