What DIB Contractors Need to Know

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is the DoD program to dynamically enhance DIB cybersecurity and protect against compromise of sensitive defense information on contractors’ systems and acts as a unified standard for implementing cybersecurity across the defense industrial base.

The CMMC Framework will be used by the government to certify and verify exactly how safe you are to conduct business. CMMC is intended to standardize and raise the bar for cybersecurity among DIB contractors. It uses CMMC third-party assessment organizations of contractors’ compliance with certain mandatory practices, procedures and capabilities that can adapt to evolving cyber threats. In November 2021, the DoD announced CMMC 2.0. Learn about key changes and timelines associated with CMMC 2.0 and how it compares to CMMC 1.0. (link to blog on CMMC 2.0 vs. 1.0)

The CMMC currently has five certification levels (CMMC 2.0 has three) that reflect the maturity and reliability of a company’s cybersecurity infrastructure to safeguard sensitive government information. The five levels are tiered and build upon each other’s technical requirements. Get the cybersecurity agility you need in order to properly handle government data.

GCC High and Azure Government for

CMMC Compliance

GCC, GCC High and Azure Government support government contractors, as well as the federal government, to meet the terms of cybersecurity and compliance. Even though GCC High is not a primary requirement of CMMC it is highly recommended. If you need to be certified in CMMC Level 3 (CMMC 2.0 Level 2) and are handling existing Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and ITAR data in your cloud environment on a Microsoft Platform, you should move to GCC High.
