Cyber accreditation body says key CMMC document to face changes

The accreditation body behind the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification program is planning to revise a draft process document released last month after it was roundly criticized for being overly complex and prescriptive. During a Tuesday public meeting, Cyber Accreditation Body Chairman Matthew Travis emphasized that the “CMMC Assessment Process” document, referred to as “the CAP,” is a pre-decisional draft. The Cyber AB released the first public version of the document in late July. It lays out a procedural guide for how CMMC assessments of defense contractors should be run.
