Common Criteria and 3RD Parties
I worked on a project where we were going to strive for CMMI Level 3 and wanted to include Common Criteria in the mix. However, when we turned to apply our Targets of Evaluation (TOE) on our vendors and contractors, they balked. Standards and guidelines like CMMI and Common Criteria are great if everyone plays along. But in terms of regulation of requirements for working with contractors and subcontractors and to what security standards they comply to, I think that Big Brother needs to step in and apply heavy fines when certain levels of data are at risk and can be compromised if all parties are not audited and certified "secure" at some level coming out the gate on a project.

Government regulation and fines aside, I think CIOs need to be more strict about the 3rd parties they recommend their CEOs approve for partnerships if the vendor or contractor is reluctant to be audited or provide evidence of compliance to even the most bare minimum of information security standards.
