The United States Department of Defense has implemented the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework to normalize and standardize cybersecurity preparedness across the federal government’s defense industrial base(DIB). CMMC evaluates if contractors and subcontractors possess the cybersecurity infrastructure to secure Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and Federal Contract Information (FCI). The CMMC framework is built on NIST 800-171 and other laws and is a remedy to the theft of billions of dollars in DoD contractors' intellectual property.

CMMC examines and describes DoD's basic cybersecurity levels. This layered approach enables contractors to comply at the right level.

CMMC mandates a third-party auditor to validate compliance. The process involves verifying documentation of processes and procedures, management and evaluation of cyber incidents, and CUI's digital and physical security.

To win or even BID on a DoD contract, any prime or subcontractor must pass a CMMC audit.

Version 2.0 of the CMMC

The Department of Defense (DoD) issued Version 2.0 of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) on November 4, 2021, replacing DFARS clause 252.204-7012. DoD contractors need a current NIST 800-171 DoD evaluation by November 30, 2020. This regulation bridges DFARS and CMMC requirements.

The DoD granted $382.6 billion to 300,000 contractors in 2019. Small and medium-sized contractors get 50% of the money. With the worldwide surge in cybercrimes and GDP drain, it's vital that the broad network of contractors adopt a security architecture to secure data and limit DIB risk.

By 2026, all DoD suppliers must be CMMC certified.
