This whitepaper is a joint effort on the part of EDUCAUSE and PreVeil to clarify the Department of Defense’s (DoD) new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification framework, and to guide your institution on its journey to CMMC compliance.

The paper provides a high-level overview of the CMMC framework and its key components. It explains basic cybersecurity principles and how they connect with CMMC, and recommends first steps to take on your institution’s journey to CMMC compliance. The paper culminates with a set of brief perspectives from research institutions outlining what they’re doing now to support cybersecurity for DoD research and CUI, and to position their institutions for CMMC compliance and certification.

Learn more about how PreVeil can enable your institution to easily and affordably protect its research data, emails and IP subject to CMMC.
