Spergel is responsible for identifying cutting-edge companies for Merlin to partner with and invest in. Spergel brings 20 years of experience building, selling, and investing in software and startups. 

Most recently, Spergel was vice president for Infrastructure Technologies at In-Q-Tel, a strategic investment firm that invests in startups that meet mission needs of government customers. There he led a team of technology experts to evaluate companies and identify novel uses of their technology within In-Q-Tel’s customer set. 

Spergel will use his knowledge and experience he gained from his career in the industry to discuss the regulation changes within CMMC, and how it will affect both government and industry employees during the panel.

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.

Spergel will serve on the panel with Ty Schieber, alongside keynote speaker Katherine Arrington. The speakers 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.

Join Potomac Officers Club for its CMMC 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.
