  • other cyber security regulations from various US Federal agencies;
  • status on FedRAMP and how it is connected with these requirements;
  • supply chain security initiatives including nation-based;
  • how the UK Tech and Defence industries will be impacted by these requirements; and
  • what UK companies should do to prepare for CMMC and other cybersecurity requirements.
