If so, it’s time to prepare for the CMMC framework that comes into effect in 2020. You WILL need to become certified if you’re operating in the DoD supply chain.

CMMC, which stands for Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification, was announced on September 4, 2019 to help clarify the level of security required for a range of engagements with multiple maturity levels ranging from basic to advanced. Those doing business with the DoD, will need to pass a third-party audit in or to do business. But before you do that, make sure you’re prepared with a cybersecurity assessment.

Why do we need CMMC?

It is estimated that the US loses $60 billion per year to our adversaries due to cyber theft. That’s American research, intellectual property, and ultimately lives that are lost do to inadequate cyber practices.

The CMMC aims to resolve this with 5 levels of security requirements based on the type of data your contract requires you to handle.

What’s the best way to prepare? A thorough review of your cybersecurity state – from processes to protocols to practices and everything in between.

All companies must schedule a CMMC assessment, and upon completion, a level of certification will be given upon demonstrating the appropriate organizational maturity to satisfy that level. Before you undergo a CMMC assessment, work with your technology partner to review your cybersecurity state.
