Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification is a cybersecurity standard developed by the US Department of Defense (DoD) that aims to enhance the cybersecurity posture of defense contractors and protect the supply chain of the US military.
CMMC compliance refers to the requirements and guidelines that defense contractors must meet to obtain certification under the CMMC standard. The CMMC framework consists of five levels of cybersecurity maturity, with each level building upon the previous one to achieve a higher level of cybersecurity maturity.
To achieve CMMC compliance, defense contractors must undergo a third-party assessment conducted by a certified assessor. The assessment evaluates the contractor’s compliance with the CMMC framework and assigns a certification level based on the contractor’s cybersecurity maturity.
The CMMC framework includes a range of cybersecurity practices and controls, including access control, incident response, system and information integrity, and risk management. The specific requirements for each level of CMMC certification are based on the contractor’s role in the defense supply chain and the sensitivity of the information they handle.
CMMC compliance is mandatory for all defense contractors that handle sensitive defense information and work with the DoD. Failure to comply with the CMMC standard can result in the loss of contracts, legal liabilities, and reputational damage. Defense contractors must ensure they are CMMC compliant to continue doing business with the DoD.
