Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)
GET STARTED TODAY
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a brand-new cybersecurity compliance stipulation for existing Department of Defense (DoD) contractors. CMMC replaces the current self-assessment model and now requires third-party certification.
CMMC is built upon existing requirements like:
- NIST SP 800-171
- NIST SP 800-53
- AIA NAS9933
- DFARS 252.204-7012
It’s the next phase of the DoD’s efforts to completely secure all aspects of the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). There will be five (5) CMMC levels designed to assess and measure the cybersecurity practices of contractors, and vendors can prepare now by undergoing a thorough CMMC audit:
- Level 1: Basic Cyber Hygiene for Practices and Performed for Processes
- Level 2: Intermediate Hygiene for Practices and Documented for Processes
- Level 3: Good Cyber Hygiene for Practices and Managed for Processes
- Level 4: Proactive for Practices and Reviewed for Processes
- Level 5: Advanced/Progressive for Practices and Optimizing for Processes
Contractors are not only judged based on the implementation of technical controls, but the institutionalization of their documentation and policies is also measured. Everyone in the DoD supply chain must be certified.
RSI Security is a CMMC-AB Registered Provider Organization and has a team of CMMC-AB Registered Practitioners.

CMMC Certification Requirements
Any company, business, or organization that does business with the DoD will be required to meet CMMC requirements. CMMC levels are put forth by the DoD, and a C3PAO (Certified Third-Party Assessment Organization) will help you determine what level is necessary depending on whether your company simply handles Federal Contract Information (FCI) or also handles Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).
CMMC DoD requirements take into account the maturity of your company’s institutional cybersecurity processes and practices. Working with a C3PAO as soon as possible will help you adjust your cybersecurity infrastructure to this new, third-party compliance standard and ensure your continued success as a DoD contractor.
