  • NextGov – Why Satellite Cybersecurity Must Be Prioritized in the New Frontier

    • ​"The space industry has experienced major changes in recent years: more federal contractors play the field, the U.S. is diverting NASA funds from space exploration to private-public partnerships, and the administration established the U.S. Space Force. Given these developments, 2020 sits poised to be a watershed year with rapid innovation in 5G and 6G, advances in private satellite technology and increased demand for global high-speed connectivity."

  • FedScoop – How one RFP is prompting backlash against the new cybersecurity board for defense contractors

    • ​"The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) — the new third-party cybersecurity testing program that applies to all Department of Defense contractors — is off to a turbulent start. A recent request for proposals posted by the CMMC accreditation body, the nonprofit that will play an essential role in overseeing the training and certification of assessors, caught many companies and military officials off guard."

  • FifthDomain – DHS’ cyber agency will now serve as a cybersecurity 'marketplace’

    • ​"The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency was formally designated as a storefront for cybersecurity, the Office of Management and Budget announced April 27, allowing it to offer cyber services to other federal agencies."
