Time is ticking and your audit could come any time before the countdown below expires








October 1, 2025

In November 2021, the Department announced “CMMC 2.0,” an updated program structure and requirements designed to achieve the primary goals:

    • Safeguard sensitive information to enable and protect the warfighter
    • Dynamically enhance DIB cybersecurity to meet evolving threats
    • Ensure accountability while minimizing barriers to compliance with DoD requirements
    • Contribute towards instilling a collaborative culture of cybersecurity and cyber resilience
    •  Maintain public trust through high professional and ethical standards

CMMC 2.0 simplifies the previous structure by reducing the number of levels from five to three. Contractors must now satisfy one of these three cybersecurity readiness levels, depending on the sensitivity of the data they manage, in order to participate in a DoD request for proposal

Which Organizations Must Achieve Compliance?

Every business participating in DoD contract bids must comply with the CMMC. This requirement extends to subcontractors within the bidder’s supply chain. 

For levels two and three, CMMC 2.0 necessitates certification from an independent assessor, while self-certification is now permissible for level one. The projected deadline for CMMC 2.0 compliance is anticipated to be in 2023.

Start Your CMMC Compliance Journey

Becoming CMMC 2.0 compliant will not happen overnight. Depending upon where you are, it could take months or even years to implement everything necessary to retain and obtain DoD contracts.

Companies that fail to comply are at risk of losing existing contracts, having them not renewed, or be eligible to win new contracts.

By getting ahead of this now, you could save your organization from great financial harm and business disruption. 

Not addressing CMMC 2.0 could kill your business.
