Got DoD Cyber Compliance? DoD to Create New Cyber Standards
Got DoD Cyber Compliance?
For DoD contractors, it appears that DFARS 252.204-7012 (NIST SP 800-171) compliance was just the beginning. Next, DoD will not only begin auditing companies for compliance within the next 18 months but also DoD is in the process of creating "new cybersecurity standards this year."
According to the article, "[t]he new cybersecurity standards will build off of the already existing [NIST SP] 800-171 standards required by the Pentagon."
