How CMMC may impact your business
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a security framework being adopted by the Department of Defense (DoD) to protect our nation’s Defense Industrial Base (DIB). The program will impact all organizations supporting the defense supply chain from weapons system suppliers down to back office suppliers and service providers. Since the framework outlines protections to protect Federal Contract Information (FCI) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), not only will prime contractors on DoD contracts need to be certified to meet their designated maturity level requirement, but sub-contractors will also need to be certified depending on the FCI and CUI data they are storing, creating or processing.
The CMMC establishes a five-tiered framework ranging from Maturity Level 1 – “Basic Cybersecurity” to Maturity Level 5 – “Highly Advanced Cybersecurity”. Each maturity level includes specific definitions and requirements for processes and practices. The certification level your business will need depends on the requirements outlined in you DoD contract.
Dewpoint can assist in helping you determining what maturity level you should strive to achieve but you should work closely with your Contracting Officer to make sure the “right” level is achieved.
