Speaker: Kyle Dimitt, Senior Compliance Research Engineer

Presentation: Securing the DIB – CMMC


DoD has created a mandate for the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) to meet minimum thresholds of cybersecurity, in order to minimize supply chain risk and protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and Federal Contract Information (FCI). The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), issued by OUSD(A&S), will be fully rolled-out by 2025. Join us in our discussion around the CMMC framework, updates since introduction (including DFARS rule changes), the current status of implementation, and how CMMC relates to other well-known federal frameworks like FedRAMP.
