The chief purpose of CMMC is to protect unclassified information throughout the defense supply chain from cyber threats. Borrowing from existing frameworks like NIST SP 800-171, CMMC requires defense contractors to implement standardized cybersecurity practices and processes in order to bid on Department of Defense contracts.
As part of CMMC preparations, contractors that handle controlled unclassified information (CUI) need to implement practices that keep CUI protected. This white paper covers key considerations regarding CUI protection for CMMC and how Virtru helps prepare for CMMC by protecting CUI shared via email and files throughout the supply chain.
What You’ll Learn:
- How the CMMC framework is structured, incorporating practices and processes across several cybersecurity domains, with 5 separate levels reflecting increasing cyber maturity.
- What defense contractors need to consider regarding controlling CUI as it’s shared via email and files throughout the defense supply chain.
- How Virtru’s data-centric protections and persistent control for CUI help organizations prepare for CMMC Level 3.
- Which specific practices and cybersecurity requirements from CMMC and NIST Virtru supports.
