Richard Naylor, senior cyber adviser and deputy director for counterIntelligence (cyber) at the Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) will serve as a panelist at Potomac Officers Club’s CMMC Forum 2020 on Thursday, April 2nd.
Naylor is responsible for leading DCSA’s Cyber operations. He joined the DCSA in 2011 as chief of the Cybersecurity Division. DCSA is a strategic asset to the Nation and its allies, continuously ensuring a trusted federal, industrial and affiliated workforce and enabling industry’s delivery of uncompromised capabilities by leveraging advanced technologies and innovation.
The agency uniquely blends critical technology protection, trusted personnel vetting, counterintelligence and professional education and certification to advance and preserve the nation’s strategic edge.
On the panel, Naylor will use his knowledge and experience he gained from his career in the federal government to discuss the regulation changes within CMMC, and how it will affect both government and industry employees.
As CMMC’s revision has moved away from self-certification, it has replaced current National Institute of Science and Technology’s (NIST) standards for cybersecurity with a five-level system of requirements for defense contractors.
Katie Arrington, chief information security officer at the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and a 2020 Wash100 Award recipient, will serve as a keynote speaker at the CMMC Forum 2020. She will address the CMMC’s timeline, how the certification process could change and will provide a memorandum of understanding with a newly established CMMC accrediting body.
A full expert panel will include Ty Schieber, senior director of executive education and CMMC-AB chairman of the University of Virginia among other members of the federal sector and industry.
