Tenable CEO Amit Yoran to Address Government Impact on Cybersecurity in CMMC Con Keynote

By Kristen Morales • September 21, 2021

Cybersecurity has become a priority in Washington with efforts beyond the executive order President Biden laid out in May. This month, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) offered technical guidance documents and are seeking public feedback on a venture to move the U.S. government toward a zero-trust model.

Contractors in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) may know of zero trust as a vehicle to accomplish Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) compliance. A memo from the OMB requires federal agencies to achieve specific zero-trust security goals by the end of 2024.

The government is getting more serious about tightening up cybersecurity and the scope of requirements is growing.

Amit Yoran, chairman and CEO of Tenable, will offer insight on what the government has done so far and what more it needs to do to address cybersecurity in the United States when he delivers his keynote address at CyberSheath’s CMMC Con 2021.

Yoran sits on the board of directors for the Center for Internet Security, previously served as president of RSA Security, and was the founding director of the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) program in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. He will speak with CyberSheath CEO Eric Noonan about government actions and what companies can do to shore up their own cybersecurity outside of federal regulations.

Register for CMMC Con 2021 now to see Yoran’s address and understand more about the government’s growing role in cybersecurity compliance.
