You're Invited to an Evening with Government Contracting Industry Executives
Join us for a Networking Reception, Dinner, and Panel Discussion on Cybersecurity, the CMMC, and Zero Trust with Experts from Holland & Knight and FORVIS
JAMIS, FORVIS, and Holland & Knight are pleased to invite you to a memorable evening reception and dinner event in downtown San Diego, CA, during the Navy Gold Coast event on Wednesday, September 7, 2022. We'd like to take this opportunity to reconnect and network with your peers in the government contracting industry.
During the evening dinner event, our featured speakers, Eric Crusius, Partner at Holland & Knight, and Tom Tollerton, Principal at FORVIS, will discuss the latest updates on Cybersecurity, the CMMC, and the Zero Trust approach. Now, more than ever, cybersecurity and zero trust are at the top of the U.S. government’s priorities. In today’s increasingly complex geopolitical environment, protecting and fortifying data is the first and foremost focus for public and private sector leaders alike. DoD has made it clear that its renewed focus on cybersecurity will have real-world impacts on contractors that pay inadequate attention to cybersecurity compliance. A contractor with insufficient focus on 800-171 is now more likely to face scrutiny from contracting officers, withheld payments, loss of future business, and even contract termination. Waiting around is no longer an option. Mr. Crusius and Mr. Tollerton will review some of the key steps you should take today, provide actionable insights, and discuss how public and private partnerships can help us to solve these national security challenges.
- The recently released CMMC Assessment Process (CAP)
- The latest CMMC timeline and certification process
- What is gained by implementing NIST SP 800-171
- The Zero Trust approach to Cybersecurity

- Q&A with the audience
