The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has released v0.6 of its Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). As we previously reported, SysArc made several suggestions to the DoD on version v0.4, and many of these suggestions were taken into consideration with the draft of v0.6.
CMMC v0.4 was released to the public for review and comments in early September 2019. Based on the feedback from DoD Contractors and cybersecurity experts who have been working to implement NIST 800-171 requirements into contractor systems over the last several years, v0.6 “significantly reduces the model size, modifies the practices and processes, and provides clarifications and examples for CMMC Level 1. The document includes CMMC Levels 1-3 of the latest version of the CMMC Model (Appendix A) with clarifications for CMMC Level 1 in Appendix B. The updates to CMMC Levels 4-5 will be provided in the next public release.”1
