Rethinking legacy IT assessments; Fighting the “Valley of Death” in DOD; CMMC on the move

On today’s episode of The Daily Scoop Podcast, the CMMC program has been moved to the Pentagon’s office of chief information officer.

The Defense Department will connect more with small companies to help them fight the “Valley of Death.” Nick Sinai, senior advisor and venture partner at Insight Partners and former U.S. deputy chief technology officer, discusses the IT procurement relationship between industry and government.

The next iteration of the FITARA Scorecard will likely look different in its next iteration. The Government Accountability Office says the scorecard is an effective tool for monitoring important IT issues. Carol Harris, director of information technology and cybersecurity at GAO, explains what might change in the next scorecard and how legacy IT might get a different look.
