Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is an upcoming cybersecurity requirement slated for initial release in January 2020 that requires all companies doing business with the Department of Defense (DOD), approximately 300,000 vendors to attain certification. 

The CMMC is a verification mechanism, departing from the DOD practice of self-verification of cybersecurity requirements, and will require certified independent third party organizations to assess adherence and provide certification. The CMMC has the following five levels of certification, with level five being the most mature and secure environment:

Katie Arrington, special assistant to the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Acquisition for Cyber in the Office of the Under Secretary of Acquisition and Sustainment in DOD, director of the CMMC program, has advised that companies are already required to be compliant and self-certified with NIST 800-171. The majority of controls found in draft versions of the CMMC are directly from the NIST 800-171. 

Our CMMC Readiness solution will evaluate your compliance against the NIST 800-171.
