Certification would be needed to engage in procurements as early as this fall, and it is about time the implementation began. The certification aim’s to increase protection and exposure through the supply chain.
With CMMC, it is based on a few other standards and was developed collectively by the U.S. military, business, and academics. The concept is focused on five separate stages of sophistication that reflect the degree of protection within a business with respect to its infrastructure, processes, and behavior. Level 1 includes a simple degree of cybersecurity, while level 5 reflects a quite advanced stage.
- Version 1 of the specification was published as of 31 January 2020.
- Any organization that wishes to do any business with the United States military has to be compliant. It is valid as of fall 2020.
- Unless there is proof of compliance, businesses will be disqualified from procurement.

An overview and background of CMMC
The DoD plans to use the CMMC to handle cybersecurity risks around the DIB – primarily in terms of securing federal contract information (FCI) and controlled unclassified information (CUI) – through independent certification to validate the cybersecurity posture of defense contractors. The effects of such certifications within the DoD’s recruitment and award systems will become discriminatory.
In addition, the DoD seeks to extend and strengthen the current guidelines for effective cybersecurity controls by the CMMC, aligning cybersecurity safeguarding criteria with the risk perception of contractors in managing FCI and CUI in executing DoD contracts. Essentially, all companies that do business with the DoD, whether as a prime contractor or as a subcontractor, would need to obtain a “level 1” sophistication rating at the very least.
