Version 0.7 of the draft Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) has been released for industry review and comment. Katie Arrington, CISO OUSD A&S, will be presenting an update on the most current information about DoD plans and processes relating to the CMMC and its mandatory 3rd party cybersecurity compliance certification process. Ms. Arrington is the leader of the DoD's Chief Information Security Office established by Kevin Fahey, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Acquisition & Sustainment. She will be providing up-to-date information and seeking feedback from defense industry stakeholders.
Once it is fully implemented, the CMMC program will require 100% of all DoD contractors to obtain 3rd party certifications of cybersecurity compliance in order to maintain eligibility to bid on new DoD contracts. Contracts that do not involve handling sensitive information will still require at least a CMMC Level 1 certification, to verify that basic cyber hygiene is being practiced by the contractor. For contracts that do involve handling of CUI / CDI, higher levels of CMMC compliance will be required and specified in sections L and M of new solicitations starting as soon as September 2020.
Don't miss this chance to learn more about the DoD's official plans and positions regarding this highly important and impactful program that can help ensure clarity and efficiency in CMMC implementation.
