Despite these potential changes, the bedrock of cybersecurity requisites remains as it has been. The basic requirements of DFARS 252.204-7012 and NIST SP 800-171 revision 2 continue to stand strong, underpinning the CMMC. So, no matter what happens, these are foundations that organizations will still have to build on. We’ve written extensively in the past on DFARS 252.204-7012, and many of the basic requirements, but here’s a helpful list:
The implication of these leaked changes goes beyond simply impacting ESPs and OSCs. Offering a hint at the wider reverberations, we can expect the landscape of cybersecurity education to be overhauled, especially for professionals certified under the CyberAB Cybersecurity Assessors and Instructors Certification Organization (CAICO).
Reflecting on the shift from CMMC 1.0 to 2.0, we remember that significant training revisions were necessary—a process likely to be repeated with the introduction of CMMC 2.1. But this time, several additional certifications, like the Certified CMMC Professional (CCP) and the Certified CMMC Assessor (CCA), may need factoring in during the review and update of exams.
One thing we can say with certainty from these anticipated changes: cybersecurity, just like technology, is ever-evolving. Ensuring to keep the CMMC model and its documentation updated with contemporary technologies, solutions, and threats is not just an option—it's a necessity. We've already witnessed a surge of Executive Orders focusing on cybersecurity matters, regular updates to the NIST publications, and now these potential advancements to CMMC. It's clear that the requirements for the DIB will perpetually evolve and adapt, reinforcing the lifeline of cybersecurity in the modern age.
