Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Standard

CMMC Standard: What is CMMC?

The CMMC (Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification) v1.0 framework was released January 31, 2020. It is a unified cybersecurity standard for future DoD acquisitions.

It was created in an effort to focus on the security and resiliency of the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) sector according to the OUSD(A&S) and the DoD. Beginning fall of 2020, the DoD will begin requiring contractors to obtain the required level of CMMC certification before they can compete for defense contracts.
