How To Achieve CMMC Compliance Certification?

If you are a contractor working with the Department of Defense, you know about the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). The new regulations’ requirements will apply to DoD projects starting from early September 2020. It means you should start planning for compliance with the new rules to ensure you do not miss out on future DoD contracts. We have an outline of the new standard and will lay out the steps that you should take right now to check off all the boxes needed for CMMC compliance.

What Is CMMC Compliance Certification?

Steps to Obtain CMMC Compliance Certification

A readiness check helps a contractor establish how prepared they are for a compliance audit by isolating immediate concern areas. We recommend that companies base the review on NIST 800-171 because it is the minimum requirement for CMMC Level 3. After completing a gap analysis, its results will help the contractor to establish its CMMC compliance level.
The analysis should cover:

Unclassified Information (CUI)

Department of Defense contractors and subcontractors should all comply with the DFARS regulations. They are easy to understand – all organizations should have security measures to keep CUI safe and must have reporting procedures in place for any cybersecurity events.
In many ways, CMMC compares to DFARS, though CMMC compliance has maturity levels. All contractors need to undergo a third-party assessment since self-assessment is not an option. The third-party evaluation ensures that a contractor is compliant with the procedures and processes necessary to protect sensitive information.
