Advocacy Update: Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)

Posted By Advocacy Team, Friday, September 27, 2019

As reported by Bloomberg Government, the Defense Department sought comments this month on a draft of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), which would be mandatory in 2020 for every supplier and contractor working with the department. 


WIPP submitted comments on Wednesday, September 25 reiterating that this certification process could be cost prohibitive and restrictive to small businesses. Thank you to cyber expert Angela Dingle, WIPP Board Chair and President & CEO of Ex Nihilo Management, for providing critical input.

Senate Committee Passes WIPP-Supported Cybersecurity Bills

Posted By Elizabeth Sullivan, Wednesday, March 27, 2019
Updated: Wednesday, April 3, 2019

The Senate Small Business Committee passed two WIPP supported bipartisan cybersecurity bills last week, the Small Business Cyber Training Act of 2019 (S. 771) and the SBA Cyber Awareness Act (S. 772). These bills are a step in the right direction to help small businesses with cybersecurity compliance as well as hold the SBA accountable to secure the sensitive data it collects. The next stop is a vote by the full Senate.

 

WIPP submitted a letter endorsing both bills to Committee Chair Marco Rubio (R-FL).
