Aerospace and Defense Cybersecurity

As of January 1, 2018, all government contractors are required to fully implement the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) SP 800-171, now the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification. This includes establishing an information security program to protect the confidentiality of all information, including Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).

Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification 

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a new requirement for existing DoD contractors, replacing the self-attestation model and moving to third-party certification. 

The certification will be built on existing requirements such as NIST SP 800-171, NIST SP 800-53, AIA NAS9933, private sector contributions, and input from academia. This new certification is intended to tighten cybersecurity within the defense industrial base. CMMC consists of five levels to measure cybersecurity practices of contractors.


DOD is planning to migrate to the new CMMC framework in order to assess and enhance the cybersecurity posture of the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). The CMMC is intended to serve as a verification mechanism to ensure appropriate levels of cybersecurity controls and processes are adequate and in place to protect controlled unclassified information (CUI) that resides on the Department’s industry partners’ networks.

All companies doing business with the Department of Defense will need to obtain CMMC.
