12:55-13:30 David Dempsey, Partner, Dempsey Fontana: US Defense Department cybersecurity requirements and supply chain obligations
Since December 2017, U.S. Defense of Department prime and subcontractors were required to have implemented a compliant NIST SP 800-171 Security System Plan (SSP) and Plan of Action & Milestones (POA&M) designed to effectively safeguard DoD “covered defense information.” Over the past eight months, DoD’s cybersecurity requirements have significantly evolved from a self-certified cybersecurity plan to a required certification by a qualified outside third party who will be authorized to certify a company to one of 5 levels of cybersecurity compliance. This is known as the “Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification” (or “CMMC”) requirement. Currently, DoD anticipates inserting the CMMC requirement in RFPs as soon as September 2020. Your company’s level of third-party certified “cybersecurity hygiene” will determine your eligibility to contract or subcontract with the Defense Department (and likely with some non-DoD agencies) and your competitive posture for evaluation purposes at any tier in the DoD supply and service chain. David Dempsey has been conducting seminars and webinars on this subject since July 2017.
