This “CMMC Sign Level 3” is used at many commercial facilities in the United States and are very necessary to warn visitors that the company is committed to its Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification. It will be controlling access to its buildings and operations. A CMMC Sign will serve as evidence of effort by the company who is seeking a certification that they have made a visible effort to limit physical access (PE.1.1.131) and a policy to escort visitors and monitor visitor activity (PE.1.132) in accordance with the CMMC Model. CMMC Level 2 requires compliance to protect the physical monitor the facility (PE.2.135). For CMMC Level 3, alternate worksites also must be safeguarded.
THIS NOTICE SHOULD BE POSTED IN ALL COMMERCIAL FACILITIES WHERE CMMC LEVEL 3 IS BEING PERFORMED IN ACCORDANCE WITH US GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CMMC MODEL.
The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment (OUSD(A&S)) recognizes that security is foundational to acquisition. It should not be traded along with cost, schedule, and performance moving forward. OUSD A&S is committed to working with the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) sector to enhance the protection of controlled unclassified information (CUI) within the supply chain. And to support the implementation of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). OUSD efforts are to support implementation of cyber security practices in order to address today’s threat landscape.
- The CMMC will review and combine various cybersecurity standards and best practices and map these controls and processes across several maturity levels that range from basic cyber hygiene to advanced. For a given CMMC level, the associated controls and processes, when implemented, will reduce risk against a specific set of cyber threats which includes strong passwords and enhanced cybersecurity practices.
- The CMMC effort builds upon existing regulation (DFARS 252.204-7012) that is based on trust by adding a verification component with respect to cybersecurity requirements.
- The goal is for CMMC to be cost-effective and affordable for small businesses to implement at the lower CMMC levels.
- The intent is for certified independent 3rd party organizations to conduct audits and inform risk.
Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) was developed to prevent supply chain attacks by bad actors. Cyberattacks on the contractors and suppliers to the U.S. government pose a serious national security threat of which the Department of Defense is focused mitigate risk. DOD tasked the National Institute of Science and Technology to develop a set of guidelines addressing advanced persistent threats that DOD suppliers face when they are handling high-value data assets also known as Controlled Unclassified Information or CUI. NIST released NIST 800-171 with the intention for its use in non-federal systems (private) and to support the use of cyber hygiene practices.
The NIST 800-171 publication provides a set of recommended security requirements for protecting CUI so that it remains confidential and controlled during receipt, storage or transfer. The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a next step based on the NIST 800-171 development with the difference in that a Certification is now possible. NIST 800-171 had no requirement for a certification. CMMC includes additional practices to help companies protect themselves from bad actors.
Implementing the CMMC requirements for a Level 3 Good Cyber Hygiene is a challenge for many companies who cybersecurity is a new thing. For other companies, this level is the ultimate cyber hygiene level required by contract.
Currently, DOD Contractors are required by the Department of Defense DOD to comply at contract award with DFARS 252.2-04-7012 which requires NIST 800-171. CVG Strategy recommends that when company’s implement NIST 800-171 that it take into consideration these CMMC cybersecurity controls or security controls. CMMC requirements today, should be treated as a regulation supplement to NIST 800-171. A specified CMMC Level of Cyber Hygiene will be required by the end of 2020.
Certification to a CMMC Level should be considered a minimal goal for all DOD Contractors with the required practices and processes to be implemented in anticipation of a certification to an appropriate cyber hygiene level. DOD Contracts are expected to require CMMC for prime contractors by Q4 2020 (or earlier).
CMMC Sign Level 3 Use
The CMMC Sign Level 3 should be used near all entrances to a company’s facilities and their use should be included in your policies and procedures which direct visitors to a central front desk for entry approval and tracking. Further, it is advised that a badging system be used to identify the security level for your visitors, which may be combines with your ITAR and EAR Compliance Program. Remember, a CMMC Sign is one element of a visible representative or evidence of your compliance with the CMMC Model.
