- Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a program established by the US Department of Defense (DoD) to secure and protect Federal Contract Information (FCI) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) by requiring the certification of external contractors across 17 different domains.
- The majority of the defense industry will likely require Level 3 certification for the IA domain, where MFA is a must-have. Requirements for Level 4 and 5 certification are still being defined. So, if you haven’t already adopted MFA for your workforce, you will need a solution that can be deployed quickly and effectively.
- While the DoD was the catalyst for CMMC, it is now gaining traction across the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) including the Department of Homeland Security and other federal government departments and agencies across the US, especially since the SolarWinds attack.
