Insights: CMMC: What is it and how does it affect your business?

Chris Smith

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a new requirement for federal contractors doing business with the Department of Defense coming into effect in the next four years. It's going to have a big impact on any business wanting to do business with the US government but there's a potentially bewildering amount of information to work through. Christopher Smith, Director of Engineering for Altitude™, Applied Insight's cloud infrastructure platform, recently wrote an article that distills the most important considerations for companies, as well as the four things they can do right now to get ready. Worth a read for anyone operating in the gov con space.
