​Ariento Inc., an IT, cybersecurity and compliance service provider to small and mid-sized organizations, announced today that developer of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Standard Dawn Greenman will speak at the annual Up On Cyber Conference on Thursday, June 25.

CMMC is a new cyber compliance standard that will be required for contractors by the Department of Defense (DoD). It is expected to take effect later this year. 

As a developer of the CMMC standard, Dawn will provide an overview of what CMMC is, why it is necessary, what it is replacing, and how the standard came to fruition.

Additional speakers include members of the development team, tasked by the Department of Defense to create the CMMC standard as well as the DoD itself. 

This year’s Up On Cyber conference will be held virtually and will focus exclusively on the recently released CMMC cyber standard. “We wanted to provide a comprehensive look at CMMC and, therefore, built a speaker lineup that represents each stakeholder,” said Ariento’s Jennifer Fullerton.
