The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a unified standard for implementing cybersecurity across the defense industrial base (DIB), which includes over 300,000 companies in the supply chain. The CMMC is the DoD's response to significant compromises of sensitive defense information located on contractors' information systems.
The US Department of Defense (DoD) released the much-anticipated Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) version 1.0 on January 31, 2020. It was drafted with significant input from University Affiliated Research Centers, Federally Funded Research and Development Centers, and industry.

The CMMC AB intends to qualify CMMC auditors via in-person CMMC auditor training. The auditor training will be conducted by trainers who are trained by the CMMC-AB. It is important to note that only auditors who attend the approved CMMC auditor training will be considered qualified to conduct the CMMC audits recognized by the DoD. Moreover the CMMC AB plans to launch initial train-the-trainer training in April 2020. With COVID-19 making in-person training impossible for the foreseeable future (as evidenced by many state school systems cancelling in-person classes until the 20-21 school year), hopefully the training for trainers will kick off in April as planned.
It is essential that DoD contractors must immediately learn the CMMC's technical requirements and prepare for certification, as well as long-term cybersecurity alertness. Since details on working of the CMMC assessments will be conducted, and how to challenge those assessments, are anticipated DoD contractors that have already started to evaluate their practices, procedures and gaps when the details are finalized will be well-positioned to navigate the process and meet the mandatory CMMC contract requirements for upcoming projects. All DoD contractors eventually are required to obtain a CMMC certification. This includes all suppliers at all tiers along the supply chain, small businesses, commercial item contractors and foreign suppliers. The CMMC Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB) will coordinate directly with DoD to develop procedures to certify independent Third-Party Assessment Organizations (CP3AOs) and assessors that will evaluate companies' CMMC levels.
