Do We Need to Meet the CMMC Standards?
To be subject to CMMC, you must meet two tests:
- Do you transmit, store or process either Federal Contract Information (FCI) or Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI)?
- Are you directly or indirectly a vendor to the DoD under a contract requiring CMMC certification?
If you’re unsure, you can speak to your customer or review the terms of your federal contract. You must also understand the definitions, because some companies may themselves create FCI or CUI as part of their activities. Not sure? Here’s a short article that explains CMMC or contact Deer Brook and we can help.
How Ready Is My Company?
If you’ve built a NIST-171 security program or have earnestly worked to meet FAR 52.204-21, you’re probably well on your way. But CMMC has additional requirements and unlike your previous self-evaluations, regulated companies will be subject to independent audits. For many, their well-intentioned efforts may not be sufficient. The DoD hopes to have its entire supply chain – including vendors downstream of its prime contractors – certified by 2026. Now is the time to begin preparation and review. Take Deer Brook’s CMMC Rapid Assessment by clicking here.
