The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework consists of maturity processes and cybersecurity best practices from multiple cybersecurity standards, frameworks, and other references, as well as inputs from the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) and Department of Defense (DoD) stakeholders. The model framework organizes these processes and practices into a set of domains and maps them across five levels. In order to provide additional structure, the framework also aligns the practices to a set of capabilities within each domain. The ensuing subsections provide additional information regarding each element of the model.
