What is the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)?
The DoD established the CMMC to measure the maturity of an organization’s use and implementation of cybersecurity controls. To work with the DoD, your organization must obtain a CMMC certificate, as well as ensure that your suppliers are certified under CMMC.
The CMMC model encompasses 17 cybersecurity domains, many of which apply directly to supply chain risk management. With Vendorpedia, manage supplier risk to adhere to the CMMC’s processes and technical practices that measure your organization’s cybersecurity maturity.
Subcontractors for a DoD contract need to be certified under the CMMC. The Vendorpedia Cyber Risk Exchange will monitor publicly available certifications for you, enabling you to quickly research which suppliers have their CMMC.
To work with the DoD, your suppliers and subcontractors must have CMMC certificates awarded at specific levels, depending on the contract. Use Vendorpedia to maintain a supplier inventory to track the specific CMMC levels of your entire supply chain.
There are five different levels of certification under CMMC. Get notified through the Vendorpedia Cyber Risk Exchange when your suppliers’ certification levels change or expire, and trigger tailored workflows to address potential risks.
