The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program standardizes cyber protection standards for companies in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). CMMC is a key component of the expansive DIB cybersecurity effort launched by the Department of Defense (DoD) to counteract national security threats in cyberspace.
In September 2020, the DoD published an interim rule to the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) which implemented the DoD’s initial vision for the program (CMMC 1.0) and outlined the basic features of the framework.
In November 2021, the DoD announced CMMC 2.0, an updated and streamlined program structure.
CMMC 1.0 and 2.0 evolved out of NIST SP 800-171, which provides recommended security requirements for protecting the confidentiality of CUI that resides in nonfederal systems and organizations.
In practice, CMMC 2.0 is a new development in the contract requirements placed on the DIB. With our Advanced Security and Compliance Add-on, contractors can easily meet CMMC 2.0 Level 2 file sharing standards and stay aligned with NIST SP 800-171.
Sharetru has proven an essential tool for government contractors to comply with the managed file transfer regulations published in NIST SP 800-171, so our platform is well equipped to handle CMMC 2.0 and beyond.
