    The Why Behind CMMC, with Robert Hill, CEO of Cyturus

    The Why Behind CMMC, with Robert Hill, CEO of Cyturus

    In this episode, we sit down with Robert Hill, the Founder and CEO of Cyturus, to unravel the WHY behind the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC).
     
    Our conversation kicks off with the pressing question: Why do small defense contractors need the same level of security as industry giants like Boeing and Raytheon? Robert Hill walks us through the tactical why, painting a vivid hypothetical scenario. Imagine a seemingly minor 4-millimeter adversarial change in the dimensions of a gasket from a subcontractor manufacturer. This breach has the potential to infect the Department of Defense like a virus, leading to the grounding of a warfighter jet and the potential to impact lives.
     
    The discussion extends beyond supply chain issues, delving into the critical need to protect intellectual property. Hill emphasizes that the true threat lies not just in information breaches but in the subsequent manipulation of data—a concept with long-term real-world implications.
     
    Join us as we explore the technical aspects. However, our conversation takes a turn as we point out CMMC is not merely about IT controls; it's about fostering a culture of cybersecurity. CMMC is not a checkbox compliance but a movement that requires business buy-in and a deep understanding of the WHY.
     
    Tune in to gain insights into the world of cybersecurity, understand the genuine need to protect national defense information, and recognize that CMMC is more than compliance—it's a cybersecurity movement.
