How CMMC Can Help Protect You From the Supply Chain Crisis

By Kristen Morales • November 23, 2021

It’s no secret that the supply chain is under attack. We’ve seen the ramifications in headlines all year, most notably the Kaseya attack that compromised 60 customers and 1,500 downstream businesses.

You can’t afford to be vulnerable as a defense contractor, especially with stakes so high.

Adversaries are seeking to exploit the U.S. supply chain as a vector to gather intellectual property and, according to Gen. Paul M. Nakasone, commander of U.S. Cyber Command and director of the National Security Agency, “our adversaries are demonstrating a new risk calculus that has changed the traditional threat landscape.”

Your best defense in this dynamic cyber environment is Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). Whether you’re ready to implement, or still in the assessment stage, there is an increasing urgency to proceed in your CMMC journey. CyberSheath investigated the networks of more than 600 contractors and found that 66% did not have the proper access controls to secure controlled unclassified information (CUI).

Trying to decipher what qualifies as CUI and only protect those assets is futile. Your entire network, not just select data, needs to be secure in order to do business with the federal government and to avoid being the unfortunate victim in the next cyberattack headline.
