What is CMMC Compliance?
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) emerged as a regulatory requirement in November 2020. CMMC is mandated in the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement 252.204-7021 clause as an interim rule. As it solidifies through legislation, CMMC will become a contractual obligation.
Why is CMMC / DFARS Important?
For defense contractors operating under the DFARS 252.204-7012 clause, compliance with NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-171 is mandatory. Furthermore, organizations handling Federal Contract Information (FCI) must adhere to the essential safeguarding requirements within NIST 800-171, as stipulated by the FAR 52.204-21 regulatory mandate.
According to the Department of Defense:
"The relationship between CMMC and NIST standards lies in the fact that CMMC requirements will necessitate a contractor self-assessment or third-party assessment to determine whether the applicable NIST standard (as identified by the DFARS clause) has been met."
