What is CMMC?

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is the Department of Defense’s (DoD) latest verification mechanism designed to ensure that cybersecurity controls and processes adequately protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) that resides on Defense Industrial Base (DIB) systems and networks.

The DoD CMMC establishes five CMMC certification levels that reflect the maturity and reliability of an organization’s cybersecurity infrastructure to safeguard sensitive government information on contractors' information systems. This DoD CMMC framework is the vehicle by which the government will mandate a contractor’s cyber security maturity level to be verified by an independent third-party audit.

Are you compliant?

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is mandatory for all contractors doing business with the DoD at any level. All contractors are required to obtain a CMMC certification. This includes all suppliers at all tiers along the supply chain, small businesses, commercial item contractors and foreign suppliers. No organizations are permitted to receive or share DoD information related to programs & projects without having completed the CMMC Compliance.

Please note: As of October 2020, the CMMC-AB is working through its initial stand up phase and working to meet the requirements of the DoD. So, no contractors are currently CMMC certified.

The CMMC Framework

Includes highly advanced cybersecurity practices. The processes involved at this level include continuous improvement across the enterprise and defensive responses performed at machine speed. This level requires an additional 34 controls among CMMC cyber security practices.

Includes advanced and sophisticated cybersecurity practices. The processes at this level are periodically reviewed, properly resourced, and are improved regularly across the enterprise. In addition, the defensive responses operate at machine speed and there is a comprehensive knowledge of all cyber assets. This level has an additional 95 controls beyond the first three Levels required by DoD CMMC.

Good CMMC Cyber Hygiene includes coverage of all NIST SP 800-171 Rev. 1 controls and additional practices beyond the scope of current CUI protection. Processes at this level are maintained and followed, and there is a comprehensive knowledge of cyber assets. This level requires an additional 91 security controls beyond those covered in Levels 1 and 2.

Intermediate CMMC Cyber Hygiene includes universally accepted cybersecurity best practices. Practices at this level would be documented, and access to CUI data will require multi-factor authentication. This level includes an additional 115 security controls beyond that of Level 1.

Basic CMMC Cyber Hygiene includes basic cybersecurity appropriate for small companies utilizing a subset of universally accepted common practices. The processes at this level would include some performed practices, at least in an ad hoc manner. This level has 35 security controls that must be successfully implemented.
