The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment (OUSD(A&S)) has developed the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework in concert with U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) stakeholders, University Affiliated Research Centers (UARCs), Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs), and the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) sector.
This document focuses on the CMMC model which measures cybersecurity maturity with five levels and aligns a set of processes and practices with the type and sensitivity of information to be protected and the associated range of threats. The model consists of maturity processes and cybersecurity best practices from multiple cybersecurity standards, frameworks, and other references, as well as inputs from the broader community.
The CMMC framework adds a certification element to verify the implementation or possesses and practices associated with the achievement of a cybersecurity maturity level. CMMC is designed to provided increased assurance to the DoD that a DIB contractor can adequately protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) at a level commensurate with the risk, accounting for information flow down to tits subcontractors in a multi-tier supply chain.
