CMMC and the Importance of a Standardized Compliance Platform
The importance of securing unclassified information is often underestimated by the thousands of organizations who handle it daily. The Cybersecurity Maturity Model (“CMMC”) process intends to standardize compliance across the entire defense supply chain increasing both efficiency and security for the government and contractors alike. Organizations can operate with greater confidence knowing their compliance and adherence to the process leaves them less vulnerable to costly data breaches from internal and external actors alike.
Other federal agencies are considering adopting CMMC to replace their current cybersecurity frameworks. As a result, the framework is likely to become a standardized practice across the government in the coming decade. All suppliers looking to continue working with the federal government and defense agencies in particular should seek solutions to ensure they are adhering to the upcoming security requirements. By proactively taking steps to verify compliance, organizations can hit the ground running as soon as CMMC becomes mandatory.
