Everything You Need To Know About CMMC

The Department of Defense recently implemented the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) to help protect America, data on American citizens, and other aspects of individual businesses that work for the Department of Defense (DoD). The goal is to create a sustainable cybersecurity maturity model that prevents bad actors from accessing vital, important, and personal information, also known as controlled unclassified information (CUI) within the supply chain.

Ty Whittenburg, a senior team member on Rea’s cybersecurity and data protection team, joins Doug Houser to explain what CMMC is, what CMMC means for business, and how business owners can implement the processes necessary. Ty has presented multiple CMMC webinars and continues to emerge as a leader in the CMMC space. He regularly works with businesses within the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) to provide cybersecurity protection from all fronts. Moreover, his experience in the U.S. military has proven to be beneficial when gaining insight into the vulnerabilities that may exist for Rea clients.
