What is CMMC?

By Justin Orcutt

Around $600 billion is lost annually to cyber theft, which accounts for 1% of the US GDP. The Under Secretary of Defense, Ellen M. Lord, declared that “Cybersecurity threatens the defense industry and national security of both U.S. government and [its] allies and partners.”

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Framework (CMMC) is the Department of Defense’s (DoD) response to growing threats. It’s a combination of multiple standards, and its objective is to enhance the protection of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) through enacting controls throughout its supply base. CMMC is designed so that it is not a one-size-fits-all standard. Instead, it is highly customizable and cost-effective to implement at lower levels for SMB.
