The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a new compliance framework that aims to ensure that DoD contractors implement necessary cybersecurity controls to safeguard sensitive unclassified information (CUI) shared with them. The CMMC 2.0 framework has been designed to replace the self-assessment method with a third-party certification process.
CMMC Level 2 is one of the three levels of the CMMC framework. It requires a contractor to establish and document practices and policies to manage and protect CUI. This level requires organizations to implement the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) SP 800- 171 controls, as well as some additional ones, to enhance their cybersecurity posture.
The CMMC Level 2 applies to all DoD contractors who handle, process, or store CUI, regardless of the size of the organization. Businesses that want to work with the Department of Defense (DoD) must obtain CMMC Level 2 certification to participate in DoD contracts. CMMC Level 2 is mandatory for all companies that wish to participate in DoD supply chain programs.
What Do You Need to Do About CMMC Level 2 Compliance?
To obtain CMMC Level 2 certification, companies must implement cybersecurity controls in their environment and undergo a third-party audit by a certified auditor. The auditor will evaluate the organization's cybersecurity controls against the CMMC Level 2 framework's practices and procedures. Organizations must demonstrate compliance with all the controls to receive CMMC Level 2 certification.
