The US has historically taken a fairly minimalist approach to cybersecurity regulation, but recent years have evidenced a trend toward increasing regulation. The latest in this trend is the US Department of Defense’s “Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification” (CMMC). CMMC has garnered quite a bit of attention recently, as it intends to impose cybersecurity compliance requirements on the entire Defense Industrial Base (DIB), over 300,000 organizations (including some universities). CMMC has emerged at a breakneck pace, and there is still a great deal of uncertainty regarding who is impacted, what is required, and how organizations should respond.

This talk will 1) introduce US cybersecurity regulation and compliance generally; 2) provide the background and context leading to CMMC; 3) overview CMMC; and 4) suggest approaches for thinking about cybersecurity compliance moving forward.
