30Sept 2020 Navy Forum

2020 Navy Forum

The U.S. Navy has continually worked to decentralize, differentialize and digitize the service branch’s work as well as develop its talent in the field. Additionally, the Navy has accelerated acquisition channels, modernized emerging technologies and increased research and development to become more effective in warfare. As the Navy continues to evolve to meet the growing demands, challenges still remain. 

Join Potomac Officers Club’s 2020 Navy Forum to hear notable industry and federal leaders discuss the initiatives, efficiencies and challenges the service branch faces as well as how to join together to improve the future of warfare.

07Oct Fall 2020 CMMC Forum

Fall 2020 CMMC Forum

As the first Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) RFPs quickly approach, it is essential that organizations and companies shift gears to CMMC preparation. CMMC is not just about fixing a gap or implementing a control, it's about an organizational behavior, such as Practice Maturity and Process Maturity, which is essential for Level 3 and higher. 

Potomac Officers Club’s Fall CMMC Forum will feature Katie Arrington, Chief Information Security Officer at the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and a 2020 Wash100 Award recipient, as a keynote speaker. She will analyze the meaning of “process maturity” and the concept of “evidence” of maturity.

During the forum, you will hear from additional federal and industry leaders who will discuss the requirements and priorities of implementing the certification, including scoping of CMMC assessments, supply chain impacts and C3PAOs. 

“I think that five years from now, it's part of a national standard, it's part of how we do business,” said Arrington in regards to CMMC integration.

27Oct 5G Summit

5G Summit

In March, the White House released its National Strategy to Secure 5G of the United States to frame how the nation will safeguard 5G wireless infrastructure at home and across the globe. The new law directs the president to produce a strategy “to ensure security of next generation wireless communications systems and infrastructure,” within 180 days of its enactment. 

5G wireless technology is anticipated to unleash unprecedented levels of connectivity between millions of new internet of things devices and there are already a range of deployments making their way across the U.S. and in a few federal agencies. 

At Potomac Officers Club’s 5G Summit, notable federal and industry leaders will discuss emerging programs, priorities and challenges within the integration process of the new 5G framework. As emerging technologies continue to become an integral part of business and innovation, leaders across all divisions must stay ahead of the curve to tackle national and global issues. 

Join Potomac Officers Club for its 5G Summit 2020 on October 27th to learn about the impact that innovative technologies and 5G integration have on the private and public sectors, the steps the federal agencies have taken to remain up to speed with the rapid advancement of technology, and the future programs, plans and priorities as the nation aligns with emerging technology.

29Oct Artificial Intelligence for Maneuver

Artificial Intelligence for Maneuver

Future near-peer adversaries will attempt to contest all domains and utilize complex and congested terrain to mitigate current joint force capabilities and reduce effectiveness of U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) tactical maneuver elements.  To help deter or defeat peer threats in contested multi-domain environments, the DoD should leverage advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms in support of robotic autonomous systems, miniaturized sensors, computing power and storage, and secure autonomous communication networks to create human-machine teams bringing greater precision, certainty, speed and mass to the battlefield.

05Nov Ensuring PNT Superiority on the Future Battlefield

Ensuring PNT Superiority on the Future Battlefield

The United States military has long led the world in the development and employment of positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) in its operations. Military PNT capabilities have become vital to the military’s ability to shape the global environment, deter aggression, and fight and win wars, now and in the future. This reliance on PNT, and particularly the U.S. Global Positioning System (GPS), has created an attractive point of attack which adversaries will increasingly target. U.S. and allied forces will be challenged to maintain mission effectiveness in environments in which PNT information is denied, degraded, or spoofed across nearly every phase of military operations. To strengthen national defense, the Department of Defense and the private sector must work together to create resiliency within the military’s existing GPS enterprise, create sources of PNT that enable robustness and resilience, and find ways to disrupt adversaries’ use of PNT information.
