The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is divided into three tiers, ranging from Fundamental to Professional ones. The objective of these levels is to assess the cybersecurity maturity of any organization using a predefined sequence of steps, practices, and areas of improvement.
The CMMC Level 2 (Advanced) is for organizations focusing on CUI (Classified User Information). The prerequisites are equivalent to NIST SP 800-171 and act in accordance with the 14 levels, and 110 security mechanisms evolved to safeguard CUI.
Criteria for CMMC Level 2
Founded on Current Controls
Established on the 110 controls present in NIST 800-171.
Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI)
Needed for any vendor that works with CUI (Classified User Information), CTI (Controlled Technical Information), or ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulation).
Necessitates a third-party assessment by a C3PAO.
Gaining Guidance with Level 2 Compliance
The CMMC Level 2 requirements are much more rigorous than the Level 1 prerequisites, and organizations must get themselves through a third-party appraisal conducted by C3PAO.
