Compliance Standards

Readiness for CMMC Compliance and Certification Made Easy

Keeping Confidential Government/Military Information Secure From Unauthorized Access and Our Enemies Is Vital For Our National Security And Economy.

Organizations that process sensitive & confidential government data have only had to “self-attest” to their following of DFARS/NIST SP 800-171 standards… until now.
This approach hasn’t worked very well. Security breaches, data loss, and other cyber events are evidence that a new standard needed to be implemented. The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a government-mandated level of attestation for any organization wanting to do work with the US Department of Defence and other highly sensitive government organizations.
CMMC will be a “must-have” requirement to be awarded a contract with the DoD. It’s time to take the step to prepare for CMMC certification or risk losing those lucrative government contracts.

Q4 2023

The CMMC rule will be released from rule making and enter the final phase.
Some Prime contractors start requiring their subcontractors to document their CMMC compliance status.

Q1 2025

CMMC finishes the regulatory creation process and starts to insert into contracts requiring mandatory compliance. While CMMC will most likely be implemented in the large Prime contracts first, the Flow Down provisions will require that Prime’s Subcontractors be compliant as well.


CMMC – DFARS Clause – 252-204-7021 – Will be in ALL contracts and ALL members of the DIB will be subject to the requirements of CMMC when contracting with the DOD and possibly other Federal Agencies.
