What CMMC Level will Your Company Need to be to Bid DoD Contracts?
The DOD acquisition process has dramatically changed with cybersecurity compliance becoming a go/no go decision for future bidders. The DOD's new CMMC framework builds off the best practices of existing frameworks, including DFARS Clause 252.204-7012 and NIST 800-171, to create one unified standard for cybersecurity. Even if you are doing your due diligence to become compliant with the NIST 800-171 controls, you may still find yourself non-compliant under the CMMC framework. Based on our hands-on experience delivering NIST 800-171 assessments, today:
- 51% would fail a CMMC Level 1 assessment
- 87% would fail a CMMC Level 2 assessment
- 94% would fail a CMMC Level 3 assessment
CMMC includes security practices not previously assessed; however, NIST 800-171 can provide the foundation for your RFP compliance.
Join Eric Noonan, CyberSheath CEO, to understand the latest updates and, more importantly, how your business should respond to achieve the necessary level of certification.
