Dawn Greenman, deputy program manager of cybersecurity at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL), will serve on the “Implementing CMMC” panel at Potomac Officers Club’s CMMC Virtual Forum on Wednesday, June 24th.
With JHU/APL, Greenman oversees cybersecurity projects across the organization and assists in the oversight of JHU/APL’s cyber operations, security engineering, and IT compliance functions. Over the past 25 years, Greenman has held positions of increasing responsibility in information technology and cybersecurity, working for companies small to large.
In 2017, Greenman led JHU/APL to compliance with DFARS 7012 and NIST SP 800-171. She worked to analyze the effect small organizations experienced with compliance requirements and noted compliance alone was not enough.
Greenman has also participated in external projects and led working groups with DoD and industry to develop strategies to improve the protection of controlled unclassified information. She has also worked to improve the security of the DoD supply chain in her role as Outreach Lead for the DoD Office of Sustainment and Acquisition’s CMMC project.
On the panel, Greenman will use her knowledge and experience she gained from her career 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.
Alka Bhave, vice president of performance excellence with Perspecta, will moderate the "Implementing CMMC" panel. In addition to the 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.
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.
