The Department of Defense (DoD) released Version 1.02 (v1.02) of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) on March 18, 2020. The DoD created CMMC in response to the continued exfiltration of controlled unclassified information (CUI) from its supply chain.
CMMC serves as a unified standard for cybersecurity that will be incorporated as a pass/fail requirement for DoD acquisitions. It draws upon many sources including National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-171 (NIST SP 800-171), the United Kingdom Cyber Essentials, Australia’s Cyber Security Centre Essential Eight Maturity Model, the Aerospace Industries Association’s National Aerospace Standard 9933, and others.
