Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)

These publications describe Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), the Department of Defense (DoD) program to protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) by bolstering the cybersecurity of the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) sector.

Abstract

The DIB is the network of more than 200,000 businesses, organizations, and universities that research, engineer, develop, acquire, design, produce, deliver, sustain, and operate military weapons systems. The DIB is under constant threat of cyber warfare activities by cybercriminals and state-sponsored actors. To help prevent losses of intellectual property and CUI, SEI researchers helped the federal government develop CMMC, a program built upon established cybersecurity standards and best practices to reduce the risk of cyber threats in the DIB.
