Re: Solarwinds vs CMMC
What standard might have prevented these attacks is the wrong question. Seatbels don't prevent all head injuries but we still accept and enforce the regulatory requirement to have them in place. A part of value in enforcing mandatory minimums on the supply chain (CMMC) is to bring everyone up to a know state of defense so that information and intelligence sharing can happen in a way that is useful to all. Today, absent these minimums, there is no value in sharing because so many don't have the people, processes and technologies to do anything with the information. On the flip side the cost of not having these standards in place is measured in lost IP, political, military and economic advantage.

Re: Solarwinds vs CMMC
Agreed, we need proof certain controls, devices, software, standards, etc actually work and prevent breaches. What Solarwindws and many big breaches recently have showed us is we dump billions into cyber security with no accountablity or proof a product is secure.  It's time for the Cyber Securiy grift and snake oil selling to stop.

Solarwinds vs CMMC
The article makes several mentions of the value of CMMC and other standards.   Is there any evidence that fully meeting any of these standards would have protected any of the businesses affected?   Is anyone tracking whether other significant breaches could have prevented using the standards?  It is time to start measuring their cost versus value.
