CMMC Assessment & Certification

Become a reliable partner in the DoD supply chain by getting CMMC certified

Solution Overview

CMMC (Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification) assessments are an evaluation process used to determine a contractor's level of cybersecurity maturity and compliance with specific cybersecurity controls.

The CMMC framework was created by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to ensure that the defense industrial base (DIB) contractors are properly safeguarding sensitive government information, including Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and Federal Contract Information (FCI).

CMMC assessments apply to all DIB contractors and subcontractors, including those that provide products or services to the DoD. The assessment process involves an independent third-party auditor that evaluates an organization's implementation of specific cybersecurity controls and provides a maturity level certification based on the organization's cybersecurity practices.

The CMMC model has five maturity levels, each with a different set of cybersecurity controls and processes that a contractor must demonstrate compliance with to receive certification. The levels are:

  • Level 1: Basic Cybersecurity Hygiene
  • Level 2: Intermediate Cybersecurity Hygiene
  • Level 3: Good Cybersecurity Practices
  • Level 4: Proactive Cybersecurity Practices
  • Level 5: Advanced/Progressive Cybersecurity Practices



The CMMC assessment process includes a review of an organization's documentation, policies, and procedures, as well as interviews with personnel responsible for cybersecurity implementation. The auditor will then issue a certification based on the level of maturity demonstrated during the assessment.
CMMC assessments are designed to ensure that the DIB contractors are adequately protecting sensitive government information, which is critical to national security. By requiring CMMC certification, the DoD is strengthening the cybersecurity posture of the entire supply chain and reducing the risk of cyberattacks on the defense industrial base.
