Keys to  Complying With New NIST, CMMC and DoD Rules

8:35 am - 10:00 am:   Keys to Understanding Technical Standards and Compliance
Presented by Roy Adkins, Braddock Metallurgical and Heather Falcone, Thermal-Vac Technology, Inc.
In a recent survey, over 70% of members shared Technical Standards play a huge role in success of their business.  The big challenge is many members don't understand the process behind how the standards are designed, who designs them, the impact of the design process and how to comply with them.  Two of MTI's members highly involved in the design of the standards, Roy Adkins and Heather Falcone, will do a deep dive into how technical standards will increase in importance, key elements members need to connect in with standards, how they are designed and why you need to stay informed through MTI on changing specs.
