DFARS|CMMC at US Women's Chamber of Commerce Event
Thursday, March 5th 2020
Gary Daemer, CEO of InfusionPoints was invited to speak at a Women's Chamber of Commerce event Thursday March 5th 2020 about the new DFARS Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program. In an attempt to secure the DoD's supply chain, the DoD built upon current security standards to mandate a certification program in order to work with the DoD. This requires accountability from the DoD's contractor's and their sub-contractors to prove compliance with federal regulations like NIST SP 800-171. The DoD wants to ensure security is a top priority throughout their supply chain. Prior to the certification program contractors were able to attest to their compliance. Now, contractors will be audited by a CPAO in order to receive a certification demonstrating their cyber security maturity hygiene level.
