RESTON, Va. — July 19, 2022 — Cybersecurity has become a top business priority across all sectors, especially for defense contractors required to comply with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program. To provide the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) with an inside look at the industry, CyberSheath announced journalist Brian Krebs will provide the keynote Q&A address at CMMC CON 2022, the nation’s largest CMMC conference.
The virtual, one-day conference kicks off at 9 a.m. EDT on September 28th, 2022. Registration for the event is still available.
Krebs, author of New York Times bestselling book “Spam Nation” and independent investigative reporter, has covered cybersecurity for more than 20 years. He covers cybercrime at the award-winning KrebsOnSecurity.com, was a reporter with the Washington Post from 1995 to 2009, and is best known for breaking stories on high-profile data breaches, including those that hit Target, Home Depot, Michaels, and Ashley Madison. Krebs will speak with CyberSheath CEO Eric Noonan on his view of the cybersecurity landscape, how threat actors strike, and what contractors can do to prevent attacks.
“We had a terrific turnout last year with 1,300 registered attendees at CMMC CON, and contractors are eager to learn more this year, with the second version of CMMC soon to become law,” Noonan said. “Brian’s security expertise will arm our attendees with a valuable perspective as they look to secure their organizations and achieve compliance.”
CMMC CON 2022: Navigating Your Course will offer defense contractors actionable insights through a series of sessions, trivia, and a black belt ceremony for those who complete a six-part cybersecurity compliance ninja training course. Registration for the training course is open through July 22, 2022.
Registered attendees of CMMC CON will receive a complimentary copy of CyberSheath’s upcoming report on the state of the DIB. Session speakers include Robert Beuerlein, Principal Consultant of Aerospace & Defense at Frost & Sullivan; Stacy Bostjanick, Chief of Implementation and Policy at the Office of the DOD Chief Information Officer; Jeff Dalton, Chairman of the CMMC-AB Board of Directors; Maryam Rahmani, Global Black Belt for the Microsoft 365 Government Cloud and CMMC at Microsoft; and Robert Spalding, retired Brigadier General with the U.S. Air Force.
