November 2019. Washington, DC, USA. ADS was given the opportunity to share our knowledge and experience in an interview with Chris Daly, the owner of ActiveCyber.net blog. One of the questions asked in the interview was:
“How is the new DoD announcement around Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) affecting your business?” – ActiveCyber
“The proposed DoD Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) maps cyber processes and controls standards such as NIST SP 800-53aRev4 across several maturity levels from basic cyber hygiene to advanced. It is intended to be a cyber compliance standard that is cost-effective for small DoD suppliers and integrators to implement at the lower CMMC levels. According to the recent announcement by DoD, the model’s inclusion in DoD contracts will be a “go/no go decision.” Therefore, we see CMMC as an opportunity area to assist our customers in getting prepared to achieve compliance with CMMC and the increasing frequency of NIST RMF requirements in RFPs for systems developed for DoD and other agencies.” – Steve Seiden, Acquired Data Solutions
