Contact us today to find out how Ridge IT can save you time, money, and business by ensuring you’ve got what it takes to maintain compliance with the new CMMC guidelines.
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a DoD program launched to protect the defense industrial base from cyber-attacks and secure sensitive information such as Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and Federal Contract Information (FCI). The Framework established by CMMC combines trust-based regulations with new verification components of cybersecurity requirements. As a result, it allows for increased control over the networks, system configurations, and policies. Security practices become emulated, and data handling can be better secured. This way, compliance with DoD requirements is easier while safeguarding sensitive information that benefits companies worldwide. CMMC Compliance and Remediation Services will help organizations plan and implement their CMMC journey efficiently, contributing to improved security posture.
WHAT IS CMMC 2.0?
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) 2.0 program is the Department of Defense’s latest effort to protect the defense industrial base’s (DIB) sensitive unclassified information from nefarious cyberattacks. The program simplifies compliance and prioritizes the protection of DoD data by streamlining requirements into three levels and aligning those with well-known NIST standards. CMMC 2.0 permits self-assessment for specific compliance requirements, adding efficiency to both DoD operations and industry collaboration in combatting cyber threats. In short, CMMC 2.0 provides a practical framework for compliance and remediation that supports the Department of Defense and industry partners looking to maintain secure systems against increasing digital vulnerabilities. The new Framework incorporates different standards and best practices to protect sensitive data, defend against developing threats, and ensure accountability for organizations following DoD regulations – all while minimizing the obstacles that come with compliance. Aiming to protect both parties in DoD agreements, the CMMC Compliance and the Remediation process is critical in securing sensitive information shared through the DIB.
