How to Prepare for CMMC as a DoD Contractor? | Right Hand Technology Group

What is a DoD Contractor?

If you are a DoD (Department of Defense) contractor and want to continue the activity, it is important to make sure your organization is following the requirements of the new Interim Rule.

A third party, specialized in cybersecurity and experienced in working with the DoD, is recommended to perform a new assessment. This new assessment needs to incorporate the new scoring methodology to ensure it follows all rules, standards, and protocols.

Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification

While it may seem like another hindrance to your budget, it is important to understand that these requirements can put your organization on the path to CMMC Level 3 compliance. This way, when the time comes and the CMMC (Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification) will get into action, your business will be ready to receive the certification without additional costs. It will keep your company one step ahead of the competition, which can also lead to more lucrative types of contracts.

Lastly, it is important to know that the work you did to become DFARS compliant was not in vain. The new Interim Rule clearly specifies that CMMC, built on DFARS, aims to bridge the gaps between the two frameworks.
