The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a DoD-developed and mandated framework to measure the cybersecurity “maturity level” of defense contractors that form the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) and supply chain.
CMMC is designed to improve the security posture and maturity levels of the DIB supply chain to further enable and protect DoD’s mission. The new program will require third party assessments and certifications to verify that DIB companies are aligned with the appropriate CMMC maturity level and are consistently practicing cyber hygiene practices while protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).
Why Does My Business Need to Become CMMC Certified?
Complying with the new CMMC framework and obtaining certification will be required by the DoD beginning in 2022. Any defense contractor intending to pursue and/or support DoD programs will be required to obtain the appropriate CMMC Certification Level prior to receiving an award beginning in 2022.
