Leading managed CMMC compliance provider CyberSheath announced today that Amit Yoran will provide the keynote address at CMMC Con, the nation’s largest CMMC conference. The virtual, one-day conference kicks off at 9 a.m. EDT on Wednesday, September 29, 2021. Registration for the event is still available.
Yoran, the chairman and CEO of Tenable, sits on the board of directors for the Center for Internet Security, previously served as president of RSA Security, and was the founding director of the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) program in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Yoran will speak with CyberSheath CEO Eric Noonan on President Biden’s executive order on cybersecurity, what other governmental efforts are necessary to shore up cybersecurity, and what actions companies can take to better protect themselves from attacks.
CMMC Con will also include a discussion with Aries Security CEO Brian Markus and lawyer Greg Thyberg speaking on the False Claims Act case, a panel on Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (PTACs) with a live Q&A, and a session hosted by Microsoft on evolving technology.
Microsoft, a platinum sponsor for the event, will cover Microsoft 365 and Azure in its session, with a focus on CMMC ML3 preparations, and leveraging government cloud offerings. Phil West, U.S. National Director of Modern Work and Security at Microsoft, will be speaking at the session.
“Last year we saw a huge response from attendees before CMMC compliance was even required,” Noonan said. “Now that it has taken effect, and the need for comprehensive cybersecurity is greater than ever, we look forward to equipping contractors in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) with a greater understanding of the evolving threat landscape and tools to help them face those challenges.”
CyberSheath recently conducted free training to support the defense contractor community to meet their compliance objectives. The five-part compliance training covered a range of topics and prepared attendees with the knowledge and tools that will make them successful. At the end of the training module, 30 participants were awarded “black belt” status. Those that received black belts will be honored at CMMC Con 2021 through the displaying of their names at the event.
