Businesses need to comply with CMMC in order to be awarded Department of Defense (DoD) contracts - as a Prime or Subcontractor.

What is CMMC?

​The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is an evolving initiative that builds off of the tenets of DFARS 252.204-7012 , which establishes the need for contractors to protect Federal Contract Information (FCI) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) by providing adequate security controls in their non-federal information systems.

Translation: If you currently do work for the DoD or plan on doing work with them in the future, from mowing the lawn to handling freight or documents and data, you have some cyber hygiene to do – NOW.​

What is the CMMC deadline?

In 2021, contracts have begun to stipulate CMMC Level requirements as a prerequisite to being awarded contracts with the Department of Defense. By 2026 the DOD will include CMMC requirements in every contract they issue. Whether you are a DoD prime or a sub, you need to be aware of and responsible for managing your business’s cyber risk, to include your downstream supply chain.

How do I comply with CMMC?

Here are are some questions for Organizations Seeking Compliance (OSC) to prepare for satisfying CMMC requirements:

1. Where does the FCI and CUI exist today?

2. How well are you protecting it and what gaps align to CMMC?

3. Have you designated a senior member to lead your cyber risk initiative?

4. Does it make sense to outsource a Network Operations Center (NOC) or Security Operations Center (SOC)?

What is the importance of complying with CMMC?

Complying with CMMC will position your organization to continue to do business with the DoD. You’ll be protecting your business and reputation, while avoiding the legal implications of non-compliance. Achieving compliance can and will naturally open doors to opportunities that were previously unavailable.
