CMMC Compliance

CMMC Controls, or Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Controls, are a set of security controls developed by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to ensure that contractors and subcontractors handling sensitive government data are meeting the appropriate cybersecurity requirements.

All DoD contractors and subcontractors that handle Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) are required to comply with the CMMC Controls. CUI is any information that is not classified but still requires protection in accordance with laws, regulations, or government policies.

The CMMC Controls are not mandatory for all organizations, but only for those doing business with the DoD or its contractors. However, the framework may serve as a useful guide for other organizations looking to improve their cybersecurity posture and protect their sensitive data.
