It aims to enhance the protection of sensitive information and ensure that contractors meet specific cybersecurity requirements. For procurement and supply chain professionals, achieving CMMC compliance is crucial to securing defense contracts and maintaining the integrity of sensitive data. The CMMC framework provides a structured approach to improving cybersecurity practices, reducing the risk of cyber threats, and ensuring the protection of national security interests.
