The experts at Concord Compliance have the experience and knowledge to provide comprehensive CMMC solutions.

What is the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification?

Due to the increasingly frequent and complex cyberattacks against the Defense Industrial Base (DIB), a collection of organizations the Department of Defense relies on, the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program was developed to enhance cyber protection standards for companies in the DIB.

CMMC compliance consists of three key requirements with the ultimate goal of protecting sensitive unclassified information that is shared by the Department with its contractors and subcontractors.

Key requirements of CMMC compliance

Tiered Model

CMMC requires that companies entrusted with national security information implement cybersecurity standards at progressively advanced levels, depending on the type and sensitivity of the information.

Each contractor or subcontractor will be classified by levels 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 of CMMC, depending on the size and nature of their business.

Assessment Requirement

CMMC requires assessments that allow the Department of Defense (DoD) to verify the implementation of clear cybersecurity standards.

The U.S. Government has observed an extreme lack of compliance regarding NIST SP 800-171 and, consequently, initiated CMMC to address the low rates of compliance.

Implementation Through Contracts

CMMC also requires certain DoD contractors that handle sensitive unclassified DoD information to achieve a particular CMMC certification level as a condition of contract award.

In other words, CMMC is designed to allow only businesses with a valid CMMC certification to bid on and win contracts with the US Government.
