CMMC board chair ousted

Turmoil within the board tapped to implement the Department of Defense’s new cybersecurity policy came to a head Wednesday. According to multiple sources familiar with the matter, the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Accreditation Body voted to remove Chairman Ty Schieber and Communications Director Mark Berman. The move comes after controversy surrounding the launch of a “Partner Program,” which created a conflict of interest by allowing for the Accreditation Body to take up to $500,000 to promote companies it could have been in charge of overseeing. The Pentagon said Karlton Johnson will take over as the board's chair. Jackson Barnett has the scoop.

Keith Nakasone said Tuesday that his Office of IT Category (ITC) is taking a “proactive approach” by adding supply chain risk management and cybersecurity language to new and old contracts to ensure companies self-certify and comply with crucial requirements established over the last few years. Dave has this too.
