CMMC Compliance

Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification

Learn more about CMMC Compliance for DoD Contractors

The United States' Department of Defense (DoD) has created critical security standards to protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) across the DoD supply chain.  This means that any vendors or contractors working in any part of the DoD supply chain will be required to obtain CMMC compliance in order to continue working with the DoD.

Representing a unified security standard, CMMC builds on security controls from NIST SP 800-171 under DFARS.  The tiered certification system includes CMMC levels 1-5 — not all contractors will require the same level of cybersecurity maturity.  Certification requirements are based on the suppliers level in the DoD supply chain with higher levels of cybersecurity risk management required with the more CUI that is present. 

Level 1

Basic Cyber Hygiene

Level 2

Intermediate Cyber Hygiene

Level 3

Good Cyber Hygiene

Level 4

Proactive Cybersecurity

Level 5

Advanced / Progressive Cybersecurity

Each CMMC tier level builds on the last, with additional layers of advanced practices and processes required by DoD contracts.  Synagex provides risk assessments for DoD contractors that will reveal the additional practices or processes required to meet your level of CMMC compliance, and implementation plans to get you compliant.

We understand this tiering model can be daunting.  Synagex is a team of cybersecurity experts with the right tools needed  to audit your cybersecurity and to get you on track to where you need to be for compliance.
