Commentary: Contractors Should Prepare for DoD CMMC Audits

Companies should conduct a self-assessment of their compliance with current government cybersecurity standards in order to prepare themselves for the mandatory audits under the Department of Defense’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification program, according to a commentary piece posted Wednesday on Federal News Network.

The article also suggests that vendors examine their capacity to comply with the CMMC requirements, review subcontractor partnerships and determine a strategy to manage certification-related costs.
