Prepare your cybersecurity controls and practices to protect DOD data and qualify for federal contracts

The Department of Defense’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) aims to strengthen security controls and practices to help protect sensitive DOD data held by contractors and their supply-chain partners, particularly Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). As a result,  DOD contractors and subcontractors now need to demonstrate compliance with CMMC standards and a certain level of maturity to qualify to win federal contracts, meaning that before the contract award they’ll need to be assessed on up to 171 security practices across 17 security domains, and on the maturity of their security processes. CMMC is expected to be rolled out through FY 2026 in a phased manner to allow DOD contractors (prime and sub) adequate time to establish, implement, and demonstrate the required level of maturity in their cybersecurity posture. CohnReznick can help your organization achieve the right level of maturity based on the types of sensitive DOD data your organization handles – or expects to handle in the future. Learn more
