The Department of Defense (DoD) has released the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Version 1.0, a new framework created to evaluate and improve the cybersecurity posture of the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) and its suppliers. CMMC is an evolution of DFARS 252.204-7012 (NIST SP 800-171) and now requires third-party attestation.

Although CMMC Version 1.0 was recently released, all organizations that provide services to the DoD will eventually need to be CMMC certified to bid on future DoD solicitations.

The CMMC lays out five compliance maturity levels from Basic Cybersecurity Hygiene (Level 1) to Advanced Cybersecurity Practices (Level 5). Each of these five levels lay out practices and procedures that, when correctly implemented, will minimize the possibility of malevolent agents breaking through a company’s cybersecurity armour.

Preparing for CMMC

If your organization is planning to renew a current contract or bid on a new contract in the future, you will need to be certified at one of the 5 maturity levels. The DoD will decide which maturity level is needed to bid on each solicitation.
