The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a vital response from the US Department of Defense to address the compromise of sensitive defense information on contractors’ information systems. It introduces a unified standard for implementing robust cybersecurity practices across the Defense Industrial Base. Enhancing the cybersecurity posture of the DIB.
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification framework is designed to protect sensitive information and control access to that information as it flows through the defense supply chain. The CMMC compliance framework incorporates existing legislations like NIST SP 800-171, 48 CFR 52.204-21, and DFARS clause 252.204-7012.
Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification establishes five certification levels that demonstrate a company’s cybersecurity maturity and reliability. These levels ensure that a company has the necessary capabilities to safeguard government information on their information systems. The primary objective of the CMMC is to enforce sufficient cybersecurity practices and processes. To protect Federal Contract Information (FCI) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) residing on the DIB’s network.
In the complex IT/OT/IoT environment, enterprises often struggle with complete visibility and accurate tracking of their hardware assets (asset inventory). Which weakens policy enforcement and exposes them to security risks. To address this challenge, comprehensive visibility into hardware assets is crucial. Attackers often exploit blind spots through USB Human Interface Device (bad USB) emulating devices or physical layer network implants. Augmented by a comprehensive policy enforcement mechanism, organizations can enforce best practice policies and define strict rules for their systems.
