Irvine, CA – May 27, 2020 – Jeremiah Sahlberg, Managing Director – Federal, Third-Party Risk at Tevora, examines the role of DFARS once CMMC goes into effect in an extensive Q and A with the PreVeil team.
The Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) lays out the framework necessary for defense contractors and subcontractors to protect controlled unclassified information (CUI) to work with the Department of Defense (DoD).
In this interview, Sahlberg details where to start when it comes to CMMC compliance and the importance of understanding your organization’s current and future goals, types of data accessible and where it resides in your organization.
Sahlberg says, “A lot of companies do not know where their gaps are. This is where our services come into play either as a gap analysis or a CMMC preassessment. As of today, no organization can do a certified CMMC assessment, as the training and Certified Third Party Assessment Organization (C3PAO) accreditation have not been issued to anyone. However, we can do assessments against DFARS and NIST 800-171. That’s a big place where Tevora is playing today and we can do those inspections now.”
