The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is the Department of Defense's (DoD) newest vendor certification program designed to ensure that cybersecurity controls and processes adequately protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) that resides on Defense Industrial Base (DIB) systems and networks. When fully operational, the CMMC will be mandatory for all entities doing business with the DoD at any level.

- NIST 800-53 / 171 controls overview
He will also introduce components in the CMMC compliance roadmap, including:
