CMMC Policies – Compliance is More Than IT
CMMC requirements are robust, and all companies that do business with the DoD must implement them or risk losing business moving forward.
Chances are, most contractors and subcontractors that conduct business with the DoD, have heard about the CMMC’s big changes. But what they may not realize is that increasingly over the next five years, contractors without CMMC certification will be ineligible to compete for DoD contracts without taking stock of their networks and physical IT processes and upgrading as required.
Now is the time to start preparing!
Combine Technology + Human Experience. It is important to keep in mind that technology is only part of the solution. This means that, ultimately, there is no such thing as a one-size solution for businesses adapting to CMMC. Particularly for smaller businesses that lack in-house IT resources, do-it-yourself solutions can be risky as well.
Experienced, trusted consultants can support complete CMMC gap assessments, remediation and ongoing monitoring required to maintain compliance. Contractors should seek partners with experience in both technology and physical security solutions along with the capabilities to support ongoing compliance as business opportunities evolve.
Software-only solutions will not be enough. Technology standards account for about two-thirds of CMMC practices, with the others focusing on physical practices guiding employee efforts to protect sensitive information. Did you know…

CMMC compliance is a daunting task for many DoD contractors, but with proactive steps and the right partner, it can also provide a competitive advantage. Those who can demonstrate that they are actively working towards compliance under the Interim Final Rule and CMMC will be best-positioned to protect their existing business when contracts are up for renewal. Of course, they will also be well-positioned to seize new DoD opportunities as they arise!
