The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification or CMMC is a set of policies and practices critical to organizations that support or feed into the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). Partners and suppliers to the DIB will have their cybersecurity posture compared to these criteria to determine how well prepared they are to handle cybersecurity threats and also how well cybersecurity is integrated into their organizational culture.

The outcome of this audit process will be a neutral party verification of the “level” of their cybersecurity readiness – which we will go into later. The main goal of the program is to validate the safeguards and practices that ensure basic cyber hygiene and the protection of controlled unclassified information (CUI) that is present within the supplier and partner networks of the DIB. Initial rollout of the CMMC program will be specific to DoD contracts.
