Take your organization’s first steps to keeping compliant with the CMMC requirements with VersaTrust.

CMMC Compliance Is Required by the Department of Defense

For contractors who partner with the Department of Defense (DoD), compliance with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a must. Businesses that operate as government contractors are at particular risk when it comes to cyberthreats. These companies need robust cybersecurity solutions and procedures that meet the unique needs of their industry and work, while also being compliant with the CMMC. Navigating the CMMC requirements, however, can be confusing without the right partner.

Frequently Asked Questions About CMMC Requirements

What Is CMMC Compliance?
The CMMC (Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification) is the Department of Defense’s (DoD) assessment standard that ensures defense contractors are in compliance with the government’s cybersecurity requirements to better protect sensitive information and data.
Why Do I Need CMMC Compliance?
CMMC compliance establishes a cybersecurity standard for contractors working with the DoD and ensures they remain accountable for protecting any government data they may gain access to through their work. The aim is to protect sensitive and controlled DoD data from cyberattacks and nation-state threats.
How Do I Get CMMC Compliant?
It is estimated that it will take 12–18 months to complete the several steps to become CMMC compliant. Contractors will have to assess their current information security policies, improve their processes, undergo assessments and audits, and more, in order to be certified.
Is CMMC Replacing NIST 800-171?
Yes. CMMC is replacing NIST 800-171 guidelines, which are being phased out.
Who Provides CMMC Certification?
Third-party assessors, known as CMMC Third-Party Assessor Organizations (C3PAO), are authorized and accredited by the government and can provide CMMC certificates.
What Are the 3 Levels of CMMC V2.0?

The 3 levels of CMMC 2.0 are a more simplified level system than CMMC 1.0. These levels indicate the degree of protection the contractor needs to adhere to, based on their anticipated handling of Federal Contract Information (FCI) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). They are categorized by:

  • Level 1: Foundational
  • Level 2: Advanced
  • Level 3: Expert
Is CMMC Mandatory?

For all contractors who work with the DoD, the CMMC will soon be mandatory.

What Is the Difference Between NIST and CMMC?

NIST is a cybersecurity framework for private enterprises. The CMMC is a cybersecurity certification program for contractors who deal with public information.

Don’t Leave Money on the Table

Compliance with the CMMC requirements is mandatory for DoD contractors. Failing to meet the assessments will result in losing current and future contracts with the DoD. Organizations that don’t adhere to the CMMC are increasing their chances of a cybersecurity breach and putting national security at risk.
