Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (2.0)
In 2020 we all faced unexpected delays in business because of a global pandemic, but one area we cannot backslide is cybersecurity. The federal government has already committed and assured contractors that Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) will continue to be rolled out on schedule and without delay. The first official version of the CMMC was released on January 31, 2020.
On November 4, 2021, the Department of Defense released a revised version of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification and is now commonly referred to as CMMC 2.0.
On May 10, 2023, NIST released a revised version of NIST 800-171 Revision 3 It is currently in draft phase awaiting comments, but this could potentially mean changes to the CMMC 2.0 standard and the necessary assessment criteria. Giga-Green is closely monitoring changes and actively communicating with our customers regarding potential impacts to their certification enclaves.
