CMMC Level 3

CMMC Level 3

Processes: Managed
Level 3 requires that an organization establish, maintain, and resource a plan demonstrating the management of activities for practice implementation. The plan may include information on missions, goals, project plans, resourcing, required training, and involvement of relevant stakeholders.

Practices: Good Cyber Hygiene
Level 3 focuses on the protection of CUI and encompasses all of the security requirements specified in NIST SP 800-171 as well as additional practices from other standards and references to mitigate threats.

It is noted that DFARS clause 252.204-7012 (“Safeguarding of Covered Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting”) specifies additional requirements beyond the NIST SP 800-171 security requirements such as incident reporting.
