Today, the Department of Defense ("DoD") posted its Draft Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification ("CMMC") Version 0.6 (dated November 7, 2019). DoD posted the following note with today's release:
DoD is releasing this latest version so that the public can review the draft model and begin to prepare for the eventual CMMC roll out. This document includes CMMC Levels 1 - 3 of the latest version of the CMMC Model (Appendix A) with clarifications for CMMC Level 1 in Appendix B. The updates to CMMC Levels 4 - 5 will be provided in the next public release.
In addition to releasing Draft CMMC v0.6, DoD is also planning on holding an Accreditation Body Kickoff Meeting, hosted by the Professional Services Council, to address specific topics and requirements associated with forming a CMMC Accreditation Body. In that regard, the kickoff meeting will cover the following topics:
Establish the CMMC Accreditation Body inclusive of a Board of Directors. The CMMC Accreditation Body will set the terms and conditions for accrediting CMMC Third-Party Assessment Organizations (C3PAOs).
The CMMC Accreditation Body will provide oversight for CMMC accreditations and assessments, including managing and providing all associated processes (e.g., quality control, training, dispute resolution, database and records management). The CMMC Accreditation Body will liaise with the Department of Defense regarding the CMMC assessments of individual companies.
