Less than two months after the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) advisory board became official, there’s already changes afoot.
Two original members of the advisory board have recently left. John Weiler, CEO of the IT Acquisition Advisory Committee (IT-ACC), and Jim Goepel, the CEO and general counsel for Fathom Cyber LLC, are no longer listed on the main board of directors section.
Goepel left for personal reasons, while Weiler decided to work with the CMMC AB in a new way.
The change comes as the Senate and House armed services committee members turn up the heat on the CMMC by adding nine provisions — six from the Senate — in the fiscal 2021 Defense authorization bill.
