TIC 3.0 final documents

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency closed out the week publishing some of the finalized key documents for the third iteration of the Trusted Internet Connections program.

The Department of Defense appears on track to start putting its new cybersecurity requirements into contracts, according to the program's leader. The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program is now just waiting for the Office of Management and Budget to approve a rule change to the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations (DFAR) that would allow the DOD to write clauses into requests for proposals requiring CMMC in all contracts.

$1B boost to TMF draws support from Senate Democrats

A group of six Senate Democrats penned a letter to Appropriations Committee leaders asking for $1 billion to support the Technology Modernization Fund in the forthcoming coronavirus relief package. The letter cites the TMF as a lever federal agencies can use to have a quick and meaningful impact in modernizing systems that need it the most. "The federal COVID-19 response has dramatically exposed the failures of outdated, legacy federal IT systems and shone a light on the need for agencies to more quickly modernize their networks," says the letter, which comes a week after House Democrats issued a similar letter to their chamber's leadership. Billy Mitchell has this one.

Classified telework for the DOD?

The Department of Defense has seen great success in rolling out a new remote work environment in recent months. And now, CIO Dana Deasy hopes to expand that environment to accommodate classified work as the department considers making telework a long-term fixture.

In a press briefing Thursday, Deasy also had updates on the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) cloud program and the expansion of the Air Force's Platform One as an enterprise service.
