Compliance with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program requires DoD contractors to undergo cybersecurity audit and certification, beginning mid 2020. CMMC will be a single standard for all DoD contracts that considers the security control and the institutionalization of cyber processes across a contractor’s enterprise assets including development environments for mission systems. Previous regulations for DoD contractors handling controlled unclassified information (CUI) allowed for self-certification of compliance with appropriate NIST 800-171 controls.  Compared to 800-171, CMMC increases cyber hygiene rigor with metrics collection, agility for model changes and audits via third-party assessors to ensure that DoD contractors have appropriate levels of security in place.

SecureIT’s CMMC compliance advisory services are specially designed to help defense contractors understand CMMC’s threat-based assessment model and implement the required controls for protecting sensitive systems, environments and data.  SecureIT’s CMMC advisory services assist defense contractors with the following:
