CyberSheath is excited to release the findings from the first-ever comprehensive, independent study of the DIB's CMMC compliance efforts conducted by Merrill Research.

The survey data of 300 U.S.-based Department of Defense (DOD) contractors was tested at the 95% confidence level, meaning that there is a 95% probability that significant differences are real and are not due to sampling error. The study was completed in July and August 2022, with CMMC 2.0 on the horizon.

Join us on our upcoming webinar to learn how you compare with peers and what the findings implicate for the security of the DIB. Based on the trends and baselines indicated in Merrill's research, we will share five key recommendations to accelerate your journey to compliance.

The supply chain risk is one that many contractors may not actively consider up front, but you are only as strong as the weakest link. The fight to ensure national security starts with you - register now to learn how.
