The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) 2.0 Paradigm – What should I do, when and how?

Since January 2018, the Defense Department (and now other agencies) has required prime contractors and subcontractors at all tiers to implement NIST SP 800-171, “Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Systems and Organizations.” Between January 2018 and November 2021, the Defense Department issued numerous guidance memoranda regarding NIST-171 and set up an arrangement with the now the Cyber Accreditation Board. The Cyber AB developed a “CMMC ecosystem” derived from NIST-171 and related NIST guidance in order to identify NIST-171 cybersecurity objectives intended for contractors and subcontractors who handle, create or store “controlled unclassified information” or CUI.  The Defense Department introduced CMMC 2.0 through a Proposed Rulemaking published November 4, 2021. DoD did not pause compliance with FAR 52.204-21 or DFARS 252.204-7012.

Your company’s level of CMMC 2.0 “cyber hygiene” directly impacts your eligibility to contract or subcontract with the Defense Department (and likely non-DoD agencies such as the GSA and the DHS) and your competitive posture anywhere in the DoD supply or service chain.

This GovConectx Program will review:

  • The current CMMC 2.0 implementation schedule;
  • Federal cybersecurity vocabulary: CUI, FCI, CDI, CTI;
  • CUI marking obligations by government personnel and contractor personnel;
  • How CMMC 2.0 “Level 1” applies to all federal agencies;
  • The requirements of FAR 52.204-21 and DFARS 252.204-7012 and the DFARS 252.204-7019, 7020, and 7021 clauses;
  • DoD’s Assessment Methodology;
  • Contractor self-assessment requirements per SPRS;
  • The DoD guidance available to achieve CMMC 2.0 Level 1 and Level 2 (the advanced level);
