As part of our continued commitment to helping organizations navigate the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC certification) process, our team has curated several CMMC resources to help organizations be better prepared to meet the CMMC challenge. 

The reference guide includes our popular CMMC Compliance Checklist that helps organizations be better prepared for CMMC by outlining steps to consider for a CMMC engagement starting from 12 months out, and a comprehensive CMMC FAQ that shares some of the most frequently asked questions from authorized resources and professionals. The FAQ Guide covers a wide range of topics and questions including:

  • How will CMMC be different from NIST SP 800-171?
  • What Domains Are Included in the CMMC Framework?
  • When will an organization need to be CMMC certified?
  • How much will a CMMC assessment cost?
  • What are the CMMC certification levels? 


The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a unified standard for implementing cybersecurity across the defense industrial base (DIB), which includes hundreds of thousands of contractors across the nation. The Department of Defense created the CMMC compliance standard to improve the security of the supply chain of the DIB.


Schneider Downs is a Candidate C3PAO. Our team currently offers CMMC readiness and consulting services as a Registered Provider Organization (RPO). Our team includes a Certified CMMC Provisional Assessor, and several other members currently in process of applying for CMMC Certified Assessor status who plan on completing training in Q2 of 2021. OSCs should note that a single firm cannot perform both consulting and audit services for a single client per the CMMC-AB standards. In the meantime, until such requirements are made public, we can help your organization prepare for CMMC by performing an assessment against the NIST 800-171 framework.
