CMMC Compliance Checklist

CMMC 2.0 & NIST 800-171 Compliance Simplified

What is CMMC Compliance?

CMMC or Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification is a model which measures the maturity level of cybersecurity. CMMC provides information to the US DoD (Department of Defense) that a DIB (Defense Industrial Base) contractor is able to protect the security of CUI (Controlled Unclassified Information). CMMC 2.0 establishes three levels of progressively increasing cybersecurity requirements. Each level is keyed to independent standards (e.g. Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), NIST requirements).

  • Level 1 outlines 15 basic cybersecurity practices and can be self-reported in the Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS).
  • Level 2 is composed of 110 requirements that align with NIST 800-171. Organizations pursuing Level 2 CMMC certification are assessed by a Certified Third-Party Assessment Organization (C3PAO), which are themselves accredited by the CMMC Accreditation Body, also known as the “Cyber AB.” These assessments are turned into the DoD and certification awarded for three years, provided there are no conflicts or issues.
  • Level 3 is the most stringent of the levels, incorporating all 110 requirements from Level 2 that align with NIST 800-171, along with additional requirements that align with NIST 800-172. Assessments are government-led and certification is awarded for three years.

The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (OUSD), which oversees the CMMC program, estimates that most DIB contractors will require Level 2 certification. However, many popular file sharing programs do not support CMMC Level 2 requirements for storing and sharing CUI. FileCloud, on the other hand, is a powerful, hyper-secure, inexpensive, and secure solution for storing and sharing CUI and ITAR data adhering to CMMC 2.0-level guidelines.

What is CMMC 2.0?

CMMC 2.0 streamlines CMMC 1.0 into three levels of progressively increasing cybersecurity requirements. Each level is keyed to independent standards (e.g. Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and NIST requirements.

Why is CMMC required?

DoD entrusts contractors with critical data, which puts them at risk of being targeted by cybercrime. Many of these contractors are small businesses with limited resources. To ensure standard level of advanced security, DoD has released CMMC, to facilitate the adoption of best practices for cybersecurity.
