The updated CMMC 2.0 framework (CMMC Readiness) will be more streamlined, eliminating both Levels 2 and 4, which were considered “transition levels” and creating a leaner model consisting of only 3 tiers; Foundational, Advanced, and Expert. The DoD feels that the CMMC 2.0 addresses the self-assessment concerns which spurred the re-evaluation, which will be adjusted to allow more opportunities for self-attestation for all companies who fall under Level 1.
However, regardless of this revamping delay, the fact remains that CMMC is not optional. The DoD has encouraged contractors to continue to enhance their cyber Security with the CMMC framework in mind as Rule-Making progresses. The CMMC program is designed to force companies doing business with the US Government to comply with a standard baseline of Cyber Security controls and will be implemented through government contracts and RFPs.

How to Prepare for a CMMC Audit:
We have eliminated the mystery and complexity of all these frameworks by working with your management to build a customized requirements matrix that captures the right level of CMMC compliance based on your CMMC requirements. We understand that no two contracts are alike as well as varying ways in which sub-contractors can be used. We will guide your team through the CMMC tiered model that addresses every business in DIB, from the fortune 500 companies down to small sub-contractor agreements, to identify the proper scope for the appropriate level of CMMC audit. Each level of CMMC maturity has increasing expectations. The following illustrates the changes in the CMMC levels and their specific set of controls for each level.
At the core of the governing framework is clean, simple, and up-to-date documentation. Our deep expertise in documenting, designing, advising, and auditing IT Compliance, Data Privacy, and Cyber Security controls will ensure you obtain the right level of CMMC certification for your government contracts.
