About CMMC

The Department is committed to working with the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) sector to enhance the protection of controlled unclassified information (CUI) within the supply chain. The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework takes various cybersecurity standards and best practices and maps these controls and processes across several maturity levels that range from basic cyber hygiene to advanced. For a given CMMC level, the associated practices, and processes, when implemented, will reduce risk against a specific set of cyber threats. The CMMC effort builds upon the existing regulation (DFARS 252.204-7012) by adding a verification component for cybersecurity requirements. About CMMC Accreditation Body The CMMC-AB establishes and oversees a qualified, trained, and high-fidelity community of assessors that can deliver consistent and informative assessments to participating organizations against a defined set of controls/best practices within the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Program.
