CMMC 2.0 Compliance

What Is CMMC 2.0?

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a requirement for Department of Defense (DoD) contractors and subcontractors that handle Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and Federal Contract Information (FCI). Cyberthreats are constantly on the rise, and CMMC 2.0 compliance ensures that DoD contractors secure sensitive information and the best cybersecurity practices.

DoD contractors and subcontractors need CMMC certification because they store and maintain large quantities of sensitive government data. The DoD supply chain is vast, complex, and permeates many industries. As such, every level of involvement with the DoD must comply with various CMMC levels.

Your technology operates on a network. If that network is compromised, you are opening yourself up to cyberattacks or other unauthorized access to your data. In other words, if you are ignoring network security, you are inviting all sorts of unpleasant experiences, from rogue employees seeing things they shouldn’t to unknown strangers demanding money so that you can access your own emails. Plus, good network security practices are critical to achieving PCI and HIPAA compliance.
