NIST Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)

The cybersecurity standard for all U.S. defense industrial (DIB) contractors

What Is NIST CMMC?

Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a tiered approach to U.S. defense contractor compliance with NIST SP 800-171 to meet cybersecurity requirements for handling controlled unclassified information. The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) announced the launching of the NIST CMMC 2.0 framework in November 2021.

Why Is NIST CMMC Compliance Important?

CMMC is designed to be the cybersecurity standard for all U.S. defense industrial (DIB) contractors to ensure against hacking and the loss of sensitive information that could impact the security of the United States.

NIST CMMK compliance will become a U.S. DoD contract requirement when the rulemaking process is completed; therefore, organizations completing and/or bidding for U.S. DoD contracts will have to be in compliance with CMMC.
