Cybersecurity has grown increasingly urgent for organizations within the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). According to a new report from the Government Accountability Office, U.S. critical infrastructure has become more vulnerable and the report recommends Treasury and Homeland Security jointly assess if a federal insurance response is warranted.
Contractors in the DIB are already trying to navigate a federal requirement to comply with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program, and understand where their vulnerabilities might be with sensitive data on the line.
As the cybersecurity landscape grows more complex for contractors, journalist Brian Krebs will lend his insight with his keynote Q&A address at CyberSheath’s CMMC CON 2022.
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.
