What's on the horizon for cmmc?
About this Event
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB) is the nation’s sole authorized provider of cybersecurity certification credentials for the defense industrial base. It is chartered by the Department of Defense (DoD) but independent from it, CMMC-AB is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working with thousands of companies that support DoD to implement common and verifiable cybersecurity standards.
Matthew Travis is the Chief Executive Officer of the CMMC-AB. He was previously the first deputy director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the nation’s leading civilian cybersecurity agency. There he oversaw the day-to-day operations of the $2+ billion, 2000+ employee organization across the full range of its mission in cybersecurity, infrastructure protections and emergency communications. Prior to this position, he was the deputy undersecretary for national protection (NPPD) within the Department of Homeland Security.
Before entering government service in 2018, Travis served as vice president of homeland security for Cadmus, a security, energy, and environmental professional services firm. A former naval officer, Travis served as an engineering auxiliaries officer aboard the guided-missile frigate U.S.S. CARR (FFG 52). He then served a tour as White House Liaison to the Secretary of the Navy and was also a White House Military Aide. He is a 1991 graduate of the University of Notre Dame and holds a master’s in national security studies from Georgetown University.
Matthew will provide an overview of CMMC as well as what has been completed so far from the CMMC-AB perspective. He will also describe the timeline towards 2026 regarding official audits and how many companies have become CMMC certified up to present time. SWICKtech encourages audience participation for Frequently Asked Question segment around what most businesses are asking from his seat, and/or how they can become prepared if they are 2nd – 3rd tier suppliers to the DoD supply chain.
