CMMC Readiness

In mid-2019, the Depart of Defense (DoD) announced it would unify a cyber Security framework and certification program to standardize cyber Security protocols across the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). The DIB includes a worldwide network of companies that provides products and services that are essential to mobilize, deploy, and sustain military operations. On January 31, 2020, the DoD released the initial Cyber Security Maturity model Certification (CMMC) version 1.0. Late in 2021, the DoD announced that the new framework was being re-evaluated and the anticipated CMMC 2.0 is currently in the Rule-Making process and is expecting a re-release with updated guidelines within 24 months.

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.
