Businesses that play an important role in securing our critical infrastructure and military secrets have to be even more careful than most. Contractors in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) need to comply with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program to make sure they don’t lose key contracts with the Department of Defense (DOD).
This can be a heavy lift, especially if you aren’t well-versed in the security realm, and CMMC 2.0 is on the horizon. CyberSheath is here to help make that workload a bit lighter by bringing the cybersecurity experts to you, preparing you for its arrival.
CMMC CON 2023 returns on Sept. 27, 2023 at 9:00 a.m. EDT to offer insights on those updated standards and help you better understand the current state of our nation’s cybersecurity landscape. Registration for the free, virtual, one-day conference is now open!
CMMC CON: Strive to Thrive attendees will gain actionable insights from this year’s speakers, who are ingrained in the world of cybersecurity, intelligence, and compliance for the defense industry and will share their unique areas of expertise.
Among the speakers are Kevin Dolan, Partner at law firm Mullen Coughlin; Ron Ross, fellow at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST); Bob Schwendinger, Chief Information Officer at Arcfield; and Richard Wakeman, Chief Architect for Cybersecurity of Aerospace & Commercial Defense at Microsoft.
We’re thankful to have had great keynote speakers in the first two years of CMMC CON — Amit Yoran, CEO at Tenable, joined us in 2021 and Brian Krebs, award-winning investigative journalist, spoke last year. This year’s keynote address comes from someone who knows better than anyone the importance of a safe and secure DOD. Stay tuned for that announcement in the weeks to come.
We will have a full day of sessions, including:
- CMMC 2.0 DOD Perspective and Way Forward
- CMMC Planning: Strategy, Cost Reimbursement, Technology
- Data Privacy and Information Security: Regulatory and Incident Response Trends
- NIST 800-171 Rev 3: Draft, Public Comments, Final Publication
- Technology Spotlight: Microsoft Government Cloud & CMMC Solution
Attendees will also be eligible to win prizes for their trivia knowledge, receive a complimentary “The State of the DIB” eBook, and witness a black belt ceremony for those who complete a six-part cybersecurity compliance ninja training course.
