NIST 800-171 compliance CMMC

NIST provides standards and guidelines around risk management, information security, and privacy controls for information systems used by the US Federal Government. FedRAMP uses the NIST guidelines in its own framework to enable US Government agencies to use cloud services securely and efficiently.

If your company does any defense work at all, the CMMC will apply to you, so start planning for compliance now as only CMMC audited companies will be allowed to continue working with the government.

Unlike NIST 800-171, CMMC is not a self-certification – audits will only be performed by approved, third party CMMC auditors. For those companies that already fall under NIST 800-171, there may be additional requirements that must be met before they can become CMMC certified.

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), managed by the CMMC Accreditation Body (CMMC_AB), is a program through which an organization’s cybersecurity program is measured by their initial and ongoing compliance with applicable cybersecurity practices as well as their integration of corresponding policies.

CMMC Level 3 is the third certification for defense contractors out of five possible levels. Specifically, these requirements apply to defense contractors who create or access Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI)

If you still have questions about CMMC Level 3, or anything around understanding the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification as a whole please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We are here to deliver solutions. Contact SecureDAM™ today!
