The Pentagon’s Cybersecurity Certification Plan includes continuously monitoring contractors | NextGov

The Defense Department’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification program has called for a proposal that stops military contractors from self-certifying themselves when it comes to cybersecurity. Those who do business with the Department of Defense will now have to get a certificate from third-party auditors that is good for up to three years.  “The CMMC-AB is issuing this request for proposal to help us identify appropriate partners in our continuous monitoring solution,” stated the release. Online training for assessors will continue in order to keep the coronavirus from pushing back any deadlines.
