New CMMC Draft & Facebook Privacy Issues

Nov 18, 2019

Happy Monday! If you haven’t seen yet, be sure to take a look at the CMMC (Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification) draft version 0.6 that was released last week. We’re getting closer to 2020, which is when the final version is set to release, and audits are going to begin for all companies holding government contracts.

In other news, after the Pentagon awarded its JEDI cloud contract to Microsoft a few weeks back, Amazon Web Services has now filed paperwork with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims to protest the Pentagon’s decision. The CEO of AWS, Andy Jassy, believes that the contract was not awarded fairly.

Lastly, there was a bug found within Facebook app for iPhones this past week. Users found that when the app is open, it was actively using the camera in the background. Facebook said that version 244 of the iOS app would launch in landscape mode incorrectly, which is why they released version 246 on November 8th. This version release caused the new bug, which allowed the iOS app to navigate to the camera screen. Facebook says no photos or videos are being uploaded as a result of the bug, but many users are still worried about their privacy given Facebook’s history.
