On January 31, 2020, the Department of Defense released its Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). The CMMC provides a unified approach for implementing increased resilience against cybersecurity attacks across the DSC to significantly reduce the risk of compromise to sensitive defense information located on contractor’s information systems. The CMMC-AB operates as both a volunteer board-led and professional staff managed organization. With the DoD’s CMMC now in place, the CMMC-AB must continue to rapidly stand up its operations, including the hiring of additional professional staff and establishing partnerships to develop and support the organization’s ecosystem, ensuring the fulfillment of its obligations to DoD.
The CMMC-AB establishes and oversees a qualified, trained, and high-fidelity community of assessors that can deliver consistent and informative assessments to participating organizations against a defined set of controls/best practices within the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program.
- DoD – In meeting its responsibilities for an enhanced level of cybersecurity for Controlled Unclassified Information in material and services procurement.
- DSC – The worldwide DoD suppliers in demonstrating their compliance with CMMC in meeting the product and services procurement needs of the DoD.
- An emerging ecosystem of existing and to-be-created entities, e.g., CMMC Third Party Assessment Organizations (C3PAO), tool vendors, as well as the development of a large assessor community and related trainers and registered professionals for which and whom CMMC-AB will provide and facilitate accreditation and certification.
