The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) programme is being implemented by the United States Department of Defense (US DoD) to protect the intellectual property it has invested in from cyber-attacks and strengthen security within the US defence industry supply chain. The CMMC programme will impact the global Defence Industrial Base (DIB) and the 300,000 companies within it, impacting many UK companies involved in the US and global defence supply chains. CMMC will add a requirement for prime contractors and their subcontracts to be CMMC certified to an appropriate level of cyber maturity, before they can undertake new contracts.
This joint techUK, ADS and TD-Info briefing will include discussion on:
- The background of CMMC, and progress to date;
- The potential impacts for UK businesses and their supply chains;
- Advice on how UK industry can get ready for CMMC assessments; and
- Discussion on the potential wider impacts of CMMC and wider efforts to strengthen supply-chain security.
