Qmulos Accelerates Defense Industrial Base Roadmap to Achieve CMMC 2.0 Compliance

The introduction of CMMC 2.0 pushes Defense Industrial Base (DIB) organizations to accelerate their roadmap to achieve and demonstrate compliance with emerging requirements as a prerequisite for new and ongoing engagement with the Department of Defense .

The CMMC 2.0 implementation timeline will see approximately 7,500 defense contractor organizations in scope for the new requirements by FY22, increasing to 25,000 companies by FY2023, 32 500 businesses by FY2024, nearly 50,000 entrepreneurs by FY2025, and the entire DIB community of approximately 300,000 businesses required to comply with CMMC as a prerequisite for all future DoD contracts.

Although companies are subject to varying levels of CMMC requirements depending on the type of sensitive unclassified DoD information they handle, all members of the DIB community will be required to achieve CMMC compliance at some level, many being required to achieve CMMC Level 3 (Expert) as a condition of bidding and delivery under DoD contracts.

DIB companies should explore proactive compliance with CMMC 2.0 requirements as part of their ongoing efforts to evolve risk management capabilities and as a critical component of their competitive strategy.

As demonstrated by the changes in the transition from CMMC 1.0 to 2.0, compliance agility, the ability of an organization to quickly adapt to changing compliance requirements as they emerge , should be considered a core business capability.

Similarly, confidence in compliance, the ability to ensure the traceability and veracity of reported compliance information, should be considered a core requirement of any mature risk and compliance management program. As illustrated by the recent Aerojet Rocketdyne False Claims Act case involving allegations of misrepresentation of cybersecurity compliance in federal contracts, organizations must proactively review and continually address risk assessment and reporting. inaccurate compliance.

The Qmulos platform enables companies to confidently achieve and demonstrate CMMC compliance by leveraging big data analytics and user-friendly visualizations, combined with automated collection of technical evidence, alerts and reports. .
