On the panel, Roberts will use her knowledge and experience she gained from her career in the technology industry 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.
Richard Naylor, senior cyber advisor and deputy director for Counterintelligence (Cyber) of Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) and Ted Ross, CEO and Co-Founder of SpyCloud will join Roberts on the panel.
The panelists will also discuss 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.
