Industry Has Concerns With CMMC’s ‘Very Ambitious’ Rollout
FedScoop, March 27, 2020
By Jackson Barnett
A coalition of technology trade associations is concerned with the rollout of the Department of Defense’s new cybersecurity standards and certification process, stressing in a letter that DOD needs to clarify gaps in how the industry will need to prepare for the new model.
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) will require all contractors — from boot manufacturers and ammunition makers to cybersecurity firms — to be certified by a third-party assessor to ensure they meet cybersecurity standards on a five-level scale.
But how those scales will be implemented and the ways that the DOD will indicate what will be required of contractors needs more details, says the letter signed by the Information Technology Industry Council (ITI), Alliance for Digital Innovation, BSA | The Software Alliance, Cybersecurity Coalition, Internet Association, and the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA).
