Prior to CMMC vs. Now
Before the passage of the CMMC, contractors who worked with the DoD were only required to self-attest their compliance with DFARS and NIST SP 800-171. They were responsible for implementing, monitoring and certifying the security of their information technology systems and any sensitive DoD information stored there.
CMMC has changed these requirements drastically. While defense contractors are still responsible for the implementation, those who process sensitive government data directly or through a subcontractor must now meet more stringent compliance standards, including third-party assessment of compliance with mandatory practices and procedures that can adapt to new and evolving cyber threats.
