Roughly 300,000 companies making up the defense industrial base (DIB) will need to earn a cybersecurity maturity model certification (CMMC). This applies to both prime and sub contractors. The exception is for companies that sell commercial-off-the-shelf items to the U.S. Department of Defense.
If your company handles federal contract information (FCI) or controlled unclassified information (CUI) then it will need to earn a cybersecurity maturity model certification (CMMC). If you do not currently have a DoD contract but want to win one then you will need to earn a CMMC. Not having a CMMC at the required level disqualifies you from the contract.
CMMC requirements will start applying to some contracts this coming year. The best way to find out if they apply to you is to check your contract. If you are a subcontractor reach out to your prime for more information on your CMMC requirements.
