What is CMMC?

CMMC is a cybersecurity compliance and certification framework which DoD created to gain assurance that its supporting contractors are implementing the 110 requirements to protect its controlled unclassified information (CUI). Nearly all DoD contractors will need to be CMMC compliant or certified to work for DoD.

CMMC requirements should begin to appear in contracts in late 2024.
