The Department of Defense intends to issue changes to compliance with The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program as a condition of awarding contracts beginning as early as July 2023. Convergint is stepping in to help assist and provide guidance regarding these changes.
Cybersecurity is a top priority for the Department of Defense. The Defense Industrial Base (DIB) is the target of cyberattacks. To protect American ingenuity and national security information, the DoD developed the CMMC to reinforce the importance of DIB cybersecurity.
The CMMC program is aligned with the DoD’s information security requirements for DIB partners. It is designed to enforce the protection of sensitive unclassified information that is shared by the Department with its contractors and subcontractors. The program provides the DoD with increased assurance that contractors and subcontractors are meeting the cybersecurity requirements that apply to acquisition programs and systems that process Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).
