Matt Kraning, co-founder and chief technology officer of Expanse, will moderate "The Role of the DIB in Countering Adversary Activity" panel discussion at Potomac Officers Club’s CMMC Virtual Forum 2020 on Tuesday, June 24th.

Register here for POC’s CMMC Virtual Forum 2020.

Kraning is an expert in large-scale optimization, distributed sensing and machine learning algorithms run on massively parallel systems. Prior to co-founding Expanse, Matt worked for Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), including a deployment to Afghanistan. 

The Department of Defense (DoD) officially released its Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) to certify DoD contractors’ cybersecurity practices and bolster supply chain security at the beginning of the year. 

CMMC’s revision has moved away from self-certification, replacing current National Institute of Science and Technology’s (NIST) standards for cybersecurity with a five-level system of requirements for defense contractors.

As a moderator at POC’s event, Kraning will introduce the most important topics on the new CMMC guidelines, including CMMC’s timeline, how the certification process could change and will provide a memorandum of understanding with a newly established CMMC accrediting body.

In addition to "The Role of the DIB in Countering Adversary Activity" Panel, Katherine Arrington, chief information security officer (CISO) for the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense, will serve as a keynote speaker at the event. 

Arrington, 2020 Wash100 Award recipient, serves as the central coordinator and integrator within the OUSDA and Sustainment (OUSD(A&S)), to align acquisition cyber strategy. 

As the cyber lead and programmatic analytic advisor for strategic cyber programs, she is responsible for conducting analysis within the major defense acquisition program portfolio and across the DoD. Arrigton will provide insight into Cyber Security Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) during her keynote address. 

Join Potomac Officers Club for its CMMC Virtual Forum 2020 on June 24th to learn about the impact DoD’s CMMC will have on cybersecurity practices, supply chain security and other aspects of the federal market.
