Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Domains Explained

The Department of Defense (DoD)’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is the newest iteration of the DoD’s effort to protect controlled unclassified information (CUI) the defense industrial base (DIB) and the DoD’s supply chain. Building on the NIST SP 800-171 control set, the CMMC is a tiered scoring system ranging from basic cyber hygiene to dynamic and adaptive cybersecurity programs. The CMMC framework is composed of 17 domains, with each tier layering in more practices and processes for each domain. In this infographic, we’ll be taking a high-level view of each of the domains and what to expect when working to meet your CMMC requirements.
