The EO is the most recent action in the Biden Administration's plan to overhaul U.S. cybersecurity strategy and leadership but is far from the first U.S. government mandate on cybersecurity - other executive orders and standards abound. The March 12 EO does introduce additional oversight and response capabilities by focusing on several key areas of much needed security of our national assets. This EO in combination with the Department of Defense's (DOD) rollout of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) will be a dramatic change and improve the security of the defense supply chain (DSC) and the defense industrial base (DIB). This course will focus on the key initiatives of the EO as well as how the CMMC will affect those who do business with the U.S. Government. Objectives: Understand the key initiatives described in the new Cybersecurity Executive Order and how they will impact you Understand the key implications of CMMC and how they will affect you Understand the steps your company can take today in order to best positioned to be compliant with the new EO and CMMC Insights on how this will affect the DSC and DIB.
