Nearly half way through 2020, the roll-out of Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is progressing toward DoD’s objective of including CMMC requirements in some RFPs before the end of the year. The CMMC Accreditation Body is launching a Provisional Program that, for an initial set of contracts, will require Primes and their suppliers to complete the CMMC certification process.

CMMC Certification will be a requirement for the over 350,000 vendors in the supply chain to the DOD. If you’re one of them, it’s time to understand what you need to do and to start preparing now.

  • How the timeline has been affected by COVID-19
  • What Primes are expecting from suppliers and how they're preparing to help
  • Where you can find help
