Member of the Development Team for the CMMC Standard Katie Stewart to Speak at Up on Cyber in June 2020

Ariento Inc. announces that developer of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Standard Katie Stewart will speak at the annual Up On Cyber Conference in June of this year.

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 Katie Stewart 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, Katie will speak on the five different levels of CMMC and an in-depth discussion on CMMC Model v1.2. 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, “to include the DoD who sponsored the standard, John Hopkins and CMU who created the standard, the Accreditation Body who will inspect the standard, and the small defense contractors that will have to comply.”

Katie Stewart is a senior member of the technical staff with the Software Engineering Institute of Carnegie Mellon University. Katie has 18+ years of experience advising clients in engineering, information technology and the telecommunications industry. Katie's current research focuses on information security governance, risk management, and measurement and analysis.
