CMMC 2.0 and Defense Cybersecurity Compliance

In early November, the DoD released an announcement for version 2 of the CMMC compliance standard. Developed with feedback from defense agencies and contractors, CMMC 2.0 seeks to streamline the compliance and cybersecurity process without sacrificing the effectiveness of the measures contained therein. While CMMC version 1 is still in play for most organizations in the DoD supply chain, version 2.0 will signal a change in requirements once those rules have been approved and implemented.
