The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification or CMMC, is a unified standard implemented by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to regulate the cybersecurity measures of contractors working for the U.S. military. The CMMC is the DoD's response to significant compromises of sensitive defense information located on contractors' information systems. Contractors working across the defense industrial base (DIB) will now be required to implement and continuously maintain a series of strict cybersecurity guidelines demonstrating adequate cyber hygiene, adaptability against malicious cyberthreats and proper data protection strategies.
Concerns Associated With CMMC Compliance
All businesses working for the DoD along any point of the supply chain are required to comply.
Minimum certification requirements demonstrating alignment with NIST SP 800-171 standards go into effect November 30th, 2020.
