What Are POA&Ms? Guidelines and Limitations for CMMC Compliance 

Are you concerned your business does not yet meet all 110 NIST SP 800-171 controls? If it meets most requirements, then you may be able to bridge the gap with a Plan of Action and Milestones (POA&M), which identifies security vulnerabilities and the steps you will take to resolve them.
