This page is an index of great LinkedIn discussions and posts about CMMC and 800-171. It will be updated over time with new topics.

If you don’t have a LinkedIn account, you will still be able to see some comments, but not all. I highly recommend being signed in to LinkedIn for full effect.

Discussions with comments from the DoD, Carnegie Mellon University | Software Engineering Institute, the CMMC Accreditation Body, and other authorities are given priority in this index.

If you would like to recommend a great LinkedIn discussion for this page, please let us know at newsletter@cmmcaudit.org or comment below.
