As cybersecurity technology continually advances and becomes more innovative in nature, the cyber threat landscape has adapted. Thus, this evolution of cybersecurity threats merits concern and has become an increasing priority for the Federal Government.
This concern also encompasses Government Contractors, as they will be encumbered by new government compliance requirements in 2020. The United States Department of Defense (DoD) launched the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certificate Initiative (CMMC) this year, a new enforcement mechanism designed to force contractors to comply with the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation (DFARS), a governmental cybersecurity framework.
If you’re a government contractor, then you should know what these regulations are, what they mean, and how they relate to your business.
