Version 1.0 of the CMMC was released on January 30th, 2020 by the DoD and includes “maturity processes and cybersecurity best practices from multiple cybersecurity standards, frameworks, and other references, as well as inputs from the DIB and DoD stakeholders.” The purpose of the CMMC is to ensure and enhance the range of cybersecurity for national security data and networks.
Starting June 2020, companies responding to the DoD Request for Proposals (RFPs) will be required to show their designated CMMC. There is no self-certification however Abwatt has the expertise and can partner with you to prepare for CMMC compliance. You can directly coordinate with us to request and schedule a CMMC assessment with the level of certification required based on your specific requirements. Subsequently, you will be awarded certification at the appropriate CMMC level upon demonstrating the appropriate maturity in capabilities and organization to our satisfaction.
