Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification

Are You Ready for CMMC?

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (“CMMC”) is a unified cybersecurity standard for Department of Defense (“DoD”) acquisitions, aimed at securing the Defense Industrial Base (“DIB”) supply chain. This standard was updated in November of 2021 and is referred to as “CMMC 2.0”.

The previous five-level model introduced in CMMC 1.0 has been reduced to a three-level model. The new levels as illustrated in the graphic below, are as follows:

  • CMMC level 1 – same as previous level (Foundational Level)
  • CMMC level 2 – same as former CMMC level 3 minus the 20 DoD CMMC controls (Advanced Level)
  • CMMC level 3 – same as proposed CMMC level 5 which is NIST 800-171 and some NIST 800-172 controls (Expert Level)
