The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a government-wide program that aims to improve the cybersecurity of defense contractors and their supply chains. CMMC compliance is becoming increasingly important for companies that want to do business with the Department of Defense (DoD), and the latest updates to the program are making it even more challenging for companies to achieve compliance on their own.
Latest CMMC Updates
In July 2023, the DoD submitted the CMMC 2.0 rule to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) for review. The OIRA is expected to publish the rule in late October 2023, and it is expected to go into effect in early 2024.
The CMMC 2.0 rule has a number of changes from the original CMMC program, including:
- Streamlined approach: Three levels of compliance instead of five
- Focus on outcomes: Cybersecurity outcomes instead of specific technical controls
- Third-party assessments: Required for all levels of compliance
