What is CMMC Compliance?

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) was created to enhance the cybersecurity posture of companies participating in US government supply chains. As of December 31, 2017, defense and government suppliers had to comply with NIST 800-171. Starting in 2020, the DoD will gradually transition federal contract information to include CMMC instead of NIST 800-171.
