ISACA South Florida Digital Update:
Understanding the CMMC Framework
To safeguard sensitive national security information, the Department of Defense (DoD) launched CMMC 2.0, a comprehensive framework to protect the defense industrial base from increasingly frequent and complex cyberattacks.

With its streamlined requirements, CMMC 2.0:
  • Cuts red tape for small and medium sized businesses
  • Sets priorities for protecting DoD information
  • Reinforces cooperation between the DoD and industry in addressing evolving cyber threats
This session will review the fundamentals of CMMC 2.0 and provide implementation approaches and recommendations for governance, risk, compliance, security, and audit professionals.

As computers were becoming part of our cultural landscape, we learned from our favorite Sci-Fi shows that computers were logical and unbiased. The character Spock in the Star Trek series was seen as the closest that humans could get to that ideal of logic. However, instead of us getting more like the logical, unbiased computers, our efforts with artificial intelligence have created computers and technology that have the same built-in biases that our culture has institutionalized.
