Update Makes Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Simpler for Defense Contractors, Attorney Says
Government Contracts Partner Eric Crusius spoke with Government Matters about an update to the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) and its benefits for contractors. CMMC 2.0 offers self-certification, which could lower costs for contractors and be more reliable than existing requirements. Mr. Crusius explained new risks companies might take on that were previously placed on third party companies. He also detailed how small businesses could be disadvantaged by CMMC 2.0 and how they can prepare for its installment.
