Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)
CMMC Compliance with Confidence as a Service™
CMMC in a Nutshell:
What's New in CMMC 2.0?
CMMC 2.0, the updated version of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification, introduces significant changes to enhance and streamline cybersecurity requirements for Department of Defense (DoD) contractors. Here’s a short summary of what’s new in CMMC 2.0:
Streamlined Levels: CMMC 2.0 simplifies the model from five to three levels—Foundational (Level 1), Advanced (Level 2), and Expert (Level 3). This restructuring aims to make compliance more straightforward, especially for small businesses.
Alignment with NIST Standards: The new model closely aligns with existing NIST standards. Level 2 corresponds to NIST SP 800-171, and Level 3 will include a subset of NIST SP 800-172 requirements, ensuring consistency with federal cybersecurity standards.
Self-Assessment Option: For Level 1 and some Level 2 contracts, companies can now perform self-assessments rather than undergoing third-party assessments. This change is expected to reduce compliance costs and administrative burdens.
Reduced Costs: CMMC 2.0 aims to lower assessment costs, particularly for smaller businesses, by streamlining requirements and increasing oversight of the assessment ecosystem.
Contractual Requirements: CMMC 2.0 will not be a contractual requirement until the rulemaking process is completed, which could take up to 24 months from the publication of CMMC 2.0 materials. Until then, the CMMC 1.0 requirements remain in effect for select pilot contracts.
DoD’s Strategic Intent: The changes in CMMC 2.0 reflect the DoD’s response to industry feedback, focusing on reducing costs, increasing trust in the assessment process, and aligning with other federal requirements.
CMMC for Prime and Subcontractors: The required CMMC level will depend on the type of Federal Contract Information (FCI) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) handled. In some cases, subcontractors might need a lower CMMC level than prime contractors.
Certification and Assessment: Once implemented, CMMC certifications will be valid for three years, and self-assessments will be required annually. Third-party assessments will be conducted by accredited bodies.
