Department of Defense (DoD) contractors routinely handle highly sensitive confidential information. Recently, disastrous breaches have jeopardized personally identifiable information. Contractors who were supposed to comply with a self-assessment for the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) program were rarely doing so. As a result, the DoD is implementing a new Cyber Mature Model Certification (CMMC)— importantly, it can be achieved only through third-party certification.
If you are hoping to bid on or be renewed for DoD contracts in the Fall of 2020, you should start on your CMMC certification process today. Depending on how well you managed your DFARS and NIST SP 800-171 requirements, a significant amount of work may be ahead of you.
Our guide breaks down every step of the CMMC certification process, including the five different levels and security requirements outlined in NIST SP 800-171.
