Overview

The first half of this course will cover the new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification. Cyber threats have impacted every aspect of our corporate and personal lives in the past few years. To better address these cyber risks, the Department of Defense (DOD) is establishing the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). This certification will be required for most DOD vendors as well as their subcontractors. CMMC is also being cited as a model for use by other federal agencies and the private sector to better secure their vendors and supply chains against cyber risks. The presenters will provide perspectives on issues and challenges related to the CMMC process and provide tools and resources to help you understand how to plan for and respond to CMMC requirements. The second half of this course will cover crypto currency. Crypto currency is likely here to stay. Businesses and consumers across the globe are quickly adopting cryptocurrencies in day-to-day transactions.
