Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)

For those working in the defense industry, monitoring the security of information technology systems is both critical for security and a regulatory requirement. To reduce the risks associated with cyber threats created by evolving technology, the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) regulations now require third-party assessments of contractor compliance with mandatory procedures.

Vancord is a Registered Provider Organization equipped with a team of knowledgeable Registered Practitioners with a wealth of experience helping manufacturers and research institutions identify and remediate their NIST 800-171 and CMMC gaps to prepare them for certification. Vancord provides Gap Assessment and Remediation services.

We provide CMMC services that implement cybersecurity best practices and recognized cybersecurity frameworks, to ensure your data is protected and that you are in compliance with necessary legal requirements. This includes:

  • Performing a gap assessment

What is CMMC (Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification)?

The Department of Defense is now taking a supply-chain risk-management approach to improving cybersecurity. That means that all 300,000 DoD contractors and researchers will need to obtain third-party certification to meet requirements for the CMMC maturity level appropriate to the work they wish to do for the DoD.

CMMC Model 2.0 is based on 3 compliance levels and most suppliers will be required to meet CMMC Level 2 Requirements.

Maturity Levels

1

Foundational

17 Practices
17 Practices aligned with NIST SP 800-171
*Annual self-assessment
2

Advanced

110 Practices
110 Practices aligned with NIST SP 800-171

*Triannual 3rd party assessments for critical national security information: Select programs may only require an annual self-assessment

3

Expert

110+ Practices
110+ Practices aligned with NIST SP 800-172
*Triannual government-led assessments
