This fourth and final virtual installment of the Cloud Security and Compliance Series (CS2) in 2021 will cover best practices for CMMC, DFARS 7012, NIST 800-171 compliance, CUI and ITAR data management. However, as a unique offering, this CS2 Virtual contains several breakout sessions centered around universities and research institutions preparing to meet cloud security requirements associated with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC).
In an article recently published by Federal News Network, ”Federal cybersecurity requirements in higher education”, it is noted that higher education institutions face slightly different challenges than industry, including a deficit of information about CMMC requirements in academic circles. This final virtual conference is timely because it will specifically provide insights on how higher education institutions are protecting CUI and FCI and include the following session highlights:
- CMMC for Higher Education with Katie Arrington
- Microsoft Program Updates for CMMC Compliance in Higher Education
Speakers include leading experts and US Federal stakeholders – such as Katie Arrington, OUSD – multiple university CISOs and IT Directors, and representatives across Microsoft’s Education and Security teams. Participants will garner insights on the roadmap for various cybersecurity regulations, address security threats, and glean best practices for their organization’s cloud investments (Microsoft GCC & GCC High / Azure Government ). Lastly, Matt Soseman returns to provide a highly focused session on “Meeting CMMC with Microsoft Information Protection (MIP)”. You can see his previous session here.
