Built On Microsoft 365 GCC High and Azure Government
Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) 2.0 was released in November of 2021 as the next stage in the Department of Defense's (DoD) efforts to secure the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) and its supply chain. Many, if not most of the DIB and higher education institutions will be required to meet CMMC 2.0 Level 2 - depending on the types of data they handle. Some high-level requirements and updates for CMMC Level 2 include, but are not limited to:
Meeting NIST 800-171 controls (requirement)
POAMS will be strictly enforced within 180 days
3rd Party Audits for all OSCs for CMMC L2
Securing the handling of CUI (requirement)
