CMMC is a unified standard for implementing cybersecurity across the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). The standard was created for the Defense Supply Chain and overseen by the Cyber AB to deliver consistent and informative assessments to participating organizations against a defined set of controls/best practices. The CMMC Model itself is created and managed by the DoD.
