Secure your organization’s standing in the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) supply chain.

By 2025, all DoD suppliers will be mandated to comply with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification requirements in order to bid on new contracts or continue to do business with the DoD. This cybersecurity certification verifies your company employs information security practices that safeguard controlled unclassified information -- such as technical drawings for military aircraft – to help protect national security.

Commercial assessments will be underway soon; obtaining certification ahead of the mandatory deadline will provide a competitive advantage in responding to requests for information (RFIs) and requests for proposals (RFPs).

More About CMMC

CMMC is based on NIST 800-171 controls and has five levels, ranging from Level 1- basic cyber hygiene to Level 5- advanced / progressive. The DoD will specify the required CMMC level in RFIs and RFPs. Most organizations will be required to meet Level 1 or Level 3 certification.

The CMMC model is cumulative with each level consisting of unique practices and processes, as well as those specified in the lower levels.

CMMC certification assesses both a company’s implementation of cybersecurity practices and its maturity processes.
