What is CMMC 2.0?

This document provides the latest information on DoD’s planned course of action for the authorized Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program modifications, which were designated as CMMC 2.0.

CMMC 2.0 is the next installment of cybersecurity protocols required to further protect the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). Essentially, CMMC 2.0 standards protect unclassified data shared between government entities and contractors.

Since contractors need to uphold strict standards of cybersecurity and data protection, DIB contractors need to become compliant with CMMC 2.0 guidelines. The best way to do this is through a third-party that can provide an assessment.

1.0 vs 2.0

You may be wondering what the differences are between the first and second cybersecurity frameworks. Essentially, two levels of security were eliminated, and the other three levels were renamed.

Although these new levels are more streamlined, they now come with more nuanced requirements regarding assessments and standards. Therefore, it’s important to work with a third-party like Full Send Networks that can ensure your company is compliant with the new regulations before undergoing the official assessment.

when did cmmc 1.0 and 2.0 go into effect?

CMMC was originally created in an effort to streamline and standardize security compliance expectations for government contractors as outlined in the 2015 Defense Acquisition Federal Regulation Supplement (DFARS). Since the creation of DFARS and the government’s stipulation that contractors implement the NIST SP 800-171 cybersecurity framework, contractors nationwide have tried to appropriately adopt the standards in order to stay under contract. 

CMMC 1.0 came into effect in January 2020 and later versions with updated measures were expected to follow. The DoD announced the release of CMMC 2.0 in November 2021. The quick succession of 2.0 underscores the importance of third-party expertise for companies preparing for official audit, and Full Send Networks has experts that can guide you through compliance.
