Working Towards Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a framework designed to enhance the cybersecurity posture of companies within the Defense Industrial Base (DIB), including those that contract with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). Built on the principle of cybersecurity maturity, it ensures the protection of sensitive defense information and enhances the overall security of the defense supply chain. 

A fast track to CMMC compliance

  • Tiered Maturity: Develop a structured and controlled enhancement of protection, from basic cyber hygiene to advanced cybersecurity measures, with tools and features to meet specific practices and processes
  • Comprehensive Coverage: Access control, incident response, and risk management, to ensuring organizations address all aspects of cybersecurity in a cohesive manner
  • Continuous Monitoring and Improvement: Continuous monitoring, with real-time analytics and adaptive security measures, ensure cybersecurity practices are continuously updated in response to evolving threats
  • Process Maturity: TrueFort provides automation, advanced reporting, and standardization best practices to establishing and maintaining the process maturity essential across the required levels of CMMC

CMMC stands for the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification. This framework is designed by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) to assess and enhance the cybersecurity posture of defense contractors, particularly those handling Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). CMMC aims to protect sensitive defense information from cyber threats and is a mandatory certification for all DoD contractors.

CMMC compliance refers to adhering to the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification standards set by the U.S. Department of Defense. It involves meeting specific cybersecurity requirements at one of five maturity levels, ranging from basic cyber hygiene to advanced. Compliance is mandatory for defense contractors and subcontractors to ensure they adequately protect sensitive defense information. It includes implementing cybersecurity practices and processes to safeguard Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and Federal Contract Information (FCI) within their networks. 

CMMC compliance is required for organizations seeking to engage in contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). It is particularly pertinent for defense contractors and subcontractors handling Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) or Federal Contract Information (FCI).
The requirement for CMMC certification is being phased in and is expected to become a standard part of DoD contracts. Compliance with one of the five levels of CMMC will be a prerequisite for any company bidding for DoD contracts that involve handling sensitive defense-related information. 

CMMC certification is required for all contractors and subcontractors in the defense industrial base (DIB) sector who are part of the supply chain for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). This includes any company that is bidding for or is part of a contract with the DoD and handles Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) or Federal Contract Information (FCI). The certification applies to businesses of all sizes, from large defense contractors to small businesses that are subcontractors or suppliers within the defense supply chain. 

The cost of CMMC certification can vary widely based on several factors, including the size and complexity of the organization, the level of certification being sought (there are five levels), and the gap between the organization’s current cybersecurity practices and the CMMC requirements.  
Additional costs can include hiring a consultant, implementing new security measures, and the actual certification process itself. Smaller companies seeking lower levels of certification may incur lower costs, while larger organizations or those aiming for higher levels of certification can expect higher expenses. It’s advisable for companies to get a detailed assessment to understand the specific costs for their situation.
