CMMC 2.0 Compliance FAQ

(Click for More Details)

CMMC 2.0 is being updated by the DoD to increase clarity and lower potential barriers to compliance. Certifying compliance with the CMMC offers assurance that your organization is able to meet the cybersecurity requirements necessary to do business with the DoD.

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a cybersecurity framework developed by the Department of Defense (DoD) to standardize information security requirements for contractors and subcontractors that are part of the DoD supply chain.

CMMC compliance is just one way to strengthen your organization’s cybersecurity posture and become more agile. Certifying compliance with the CMMC is a contractual obligation for doing business with the DoD, but there are other benefits as well.

Due to the fact that the CMMC is aligned to other existing frameworks like NIST, your organization can design a collaborative compliance plan based around your business needs. A strong cybersecurity posture can open up new business opportunities by building trust with current or future clients.

Compliance with the CMMC demonstrates to internal and external stakeholders that your organization takes cybersecurity risks seriously. and that you have taken steps to proactively manage that risk. 

Whether or not your organization is required to comply with the CMMC, increasing your organization’s cybersecurity awareness will help build a strong culture of secuirty and risk mitigation.

CMMC is designed to protected Federal Contract Information (FCI) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) that may be shared between the DoD and contractors or subcontractors through acquisition programs.

CMMC 2.0 contains 3 levels, simplified from 5 levels in the original iteration.

  1. Level 1 (Foundational): Matches the 15 controls of FAR52.204-21. Certification is required annually.
  2. Level 2: (Advanced): Mirrors NIST SP 800-71. Triennial assessments are required for critical national security information.
  3. Level 3 (Expert): Mirrors NIST 800-171 and 800-172. Requires triennial government led assessments.

As a candidate CMMC Third-Party Assessor Organization (C3PAO), Auditwerx is ready to support your organization through the CMMC readiness process and to offer compliance advisory for assessment objectives.
