What is the CMMC?
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a framework designed by the Department of Defense (DoD) to help protect controlled unclassified information within its supply chain. Developed by the DoD, federal stakeholders, and industry professionals, the CMMC provides the Defense Industrial Base sector with a clear set of cybersecurity standards and best practices to follow. Many DoD contractors will have to complete the CMMC prior to bidding on work in the coming months. Understanding the current state of your cybersecurity program and how it measures up against the CMMC framework is the critical first step in this process.
