A CMMC Overview
The United States Department of Defense (DoD) has created the new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) standard that will soon be required for corporations and entities that want to bid as a contractor, or act as a subcontractor, for DoD projects.
This whitepaper is designed to give electrical and mechanical contractor corporate leadership and their IT Directors an overview of the CMMC standard. This paper will also answer some of the most frequently asked questions about the CMMC and cut through much of the confusion and technical jargon that has surrounded the CMMC since its launch in January 2020.
Below are the official Department of Defense Reference Guides and as well as an implementation Guide for you to use.

As this is an evolving standard and subject to change, this whitepaper will be updated, if needed, throughout 2021. Please check back periodically for updates to this document.
