Deputy Program Manager Cybersecurity
Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory
Dawn M Greenman is Deputy Program Manager Cybersecurity for Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL). In this position, she oversees cybersecurity projects across the organization and assists in the oversight of JHU/APL’s cyber operations, security engineering, and IT compliance functions.
Over the past 25 years, Ms. Greenman has held positions of increasing responsibility in information technology and cybersecurity, working for companies small to large. In 2017, Dawn lead JHU/APL to compliance with DFARS 7012 and NIST SP 800-171. During this time, she recognized the struggle small organizations were having with compliance requirements and also understood compliance alone was not enough. She started to participate in external projects and lead working groups with DoD and industry to develop strategies to improve the protection of controlled unclassified information.
More recently, passionate to improve the security of the DoD supply chain, Ms. Greenman eagerly accepted a role as Outreach Lead for the DoD Office of Sustainment and Acquisition’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) project. The Cybersecurity Maturity Model, developed by JHU/APL and SEI/CERT, delivered DoD a new common standard in cybersecurity in January 2020. She will continue to participate in efforts to implement this new standard which will begin to be required by all defense contractors doing business with DoD as early as this summer.
Ms. Greenman holds an undergraduate degree in Information Systems with a concentration in Homeland Security. In July 2019, she graduated with an Executive Masters of Business Administration from The University of Maryland Robert H. Smith School Of Business. She is a Certified Information Security Professional (CISSP) and holds the GIAC Security Essentials (GSEC) certification.
