Tech Companies Tell DoD Its New Cyber Standards Are Missing the Mark

Federal News Network, March 27, 2020

By Jason Miller

On the heels of the official launch of the Defense Department’s cybersecurity maturity model certification effort, six industry associations are warning that without more clarity, the initiative could falter.

The Alliance for Digital Innovation, BSA | The Software Alliance, the Cybersecurity Coalition, the Information Technology Industry Council (ITI), the Internet Association and the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) wrote a letter to Ellen Lord, the undersecretary of Defense for acquisition and sustainment, and Katie Arrington, the chief information security officer in the Office of the Undersecretary for Acquisition and Sustainment, outlining a series of recommendations for how to improve the CMMC program before it truly gets going.

“We are concerned that current plans for implementing CMMC lack sufficient clarity and predictability in key areas, and as a result may unnecessarily generate confusion, delay and associated costs. These challenges could lead to the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) being even less secure, if left unaddressed,” the letter states. “We strongly support efforts to improve DIB cybersecurity and appreciate the department’s openness in meeting with and accepting input from industry about the CMMC during the autumn of 2019. We pledge to continue this partnership, as it is imperative that industry stakeholders and government continue to work together to ensure that the CMMC meets its overall objectives.”
