Who needs CMMC?

Any company with Federal Contract Information (FCI) must achieve CMMC 2.0 Foundational Level 1 certification. This includes DoD contractors and subcontractors that do not even handle Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). For those that handle CUI, CMMC 2.0 Level 2 certification is likely required.

What is a CMMC assessment?

A CMMC assessment is the process in which a company’s IT network is assessed against the cybersecurity controls required for each specific level of CMMC compliance. There are a few different versions of the CMMC assessment available: self-assessment, assessment by a Registered Provider Organization (RPO) or assessment by a Certified Third-Party Assessor Organization (C3PAO)

What does it mean to be CMMC compliant?

Being CMMC compliant means that your organization has successfully implemented the required cybersecurity practices and processes outlined by the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) for your designated maturity level.

How often do I need to renew my CMMC certification?

Organizations who are CMMC level 1 and go through the self-certification process must do so on an annual basis. Organizations who are CMMC level 2 and work with a C3PAO have their certification valid for three years. After three years, your organization must undergo another third-party assessment to renew the certification.

What is a CMMC RPO?

A CMMC RPO is a Registered Provider Organization who provides pre-assessment consulting services to government contractors and other organizations who are looking to become CMMC certified.

What is a CMMC C3PAO?

A CMMC C3PAO is a Third-Party Assessor Organization that has been authorized by the CMMC Accreditation Body to conduct official assessments for CMMC certification.
