When it comes to sensitive and proprietary defense information, it’s important to focus on preparing for evolving threats. The defense and military marketplace will be less and less tolerant of accepting cyber-related risks, as evidenced by the enactment of Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) by the US Department of Defense. This means that companies hoping to do business in this arena will need to promote a culture of cyber resiliency and flexibility.
Certification for CMMC and other standards such as ITAR are concerned with improving the security and surety of information used by federal contractors and subcontractors. Adopting cybersecurity best practices with a defense-in-depth strategy can help protect information—and countries as a whole—both now and into the future.
