QOMPLX™, an intelligent decision platform provider, today announced the release of the CMMC Pre-Assessment, a solution to help prepare defense contractors to pass their Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) audit. The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) created CMMC to enhance the cybersecurity posture of the companies that make up the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). As part of this upcoming prerequisite, all 300,000+ DIB companies will be required to meet specific maturity levels to be awarded a contract from the DOD. Previously, companies could self-certify with the appropriate Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations (DFARS) and other regulations such as NIST 800-171, but CMMC now requires third-party auditors to validate if contractors are compliant with the required cybersecurity practices and procedures.
