Achieving CMMC certification is a must for companies and contractors that want to work in the Department of Defense supply chain.
Does your organization work – or want to work – with the U.S. government? All contractors, particularly those working with the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), must have the right security measures in place.
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), a unified standard for evaluating the cybersecurity posture of contractors in the US Defense Industrial Base (DIB) sector, can help you become eligible to work in this supply chain.
The DoD has announced that, starting in 2026, all contractors must have at least a basic level of CMMC certification to be eligible to bid on new contracts. Companies with a higher level of CMMC certification will enjoy a competitive advantage over companies with a lower CMMC level or no certification.
At Mildeeng Systems, we work with federal contractors and subcontractors in Washington D.C. and beyond to ensure they’re prepared for the complex CMMC certification process.
Proven CMMC Assessment Company in Northern Virginia
Mildeeng Systems is an experienced CMMC Assessment company in Northern Virginia. Our team understands 171 practices and capabilities related to CMMC and NIST 800-171 compliance and can ensure that your organization is ready for its role as a partner to the federal government. Your private sector clients will also be more likely to do business with you over a competitor, if you’ve achieved a higher level of CMMC certification.
NIST 800-171 is a set of guidelines that nonfederal government computer systems and contractors must follow when interacting with Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) to ensure its protection. These guidelines work in conjunction with NIST 800-53 and detail the appropriate methods for handling, storing, and transmitting information to minimize the risk of loss or theft.
CMMC includes five levels of compliance to ensure that your organization can protect and control sensitive data:
Level 1: This level indicates that a contractor or subcontractor understands and adheres to basic data hygiene.
Level 2: Level 2 CMMC compliance highlights that a contractor or subcontractor follows intermediate data hygiene and implements 72 practices to safeguard relevant information. It also interrelates with NIST 800-171 requirements.
Level 3: Level 3 CMMC certification ensures that organizations follow 110+ practices to protect relevant information and requires complete compliance with NIST 800-171 requirements.
