The DOD is nearing completion of its cybersecurity CMMC program standards. DOD’s goal is to finalize the CMMC standards by January 2020, and contractors should expect to see CMMC requirements in the bidding process later next year. The CMMC standards, which will include a third-party certification requirement, represent a sea change in cybersecurity integrity for DOD contractors.

With the CMMC framework expected to have a numeric rating system for potential compliance—from Level 1 (basic cybersecurity) to Level 5 (sophisticated practices for advanced contractors)—offerors should closely evaluate their cybersecurity levels and prepare for the implementation of these new standards.
