CMMC Assessment: Determining If It’s Right for Your Company
The CMMC assessment is a requirement for many, but not all, companies. Understanding whether your business falls under this mandate is crucial for compliance and maintaining contracts with the DoD.
The Primary Targets of CMMC
The primary aim of the CMMC framework is to ensure that sensitive defense information, specifically “Covered Defense Information” (CDI) and “Controlled Unclassified Information” (CUI), is adequately protected. As such, any company that contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and handles this type of information is required to undergo a CMMC assessment.
This encompasses a wide range of industries. From Aerospace & Defense to IT/Managed Service Providers, Engineering and Consulting, Manufacturing, and Software Development, many sectors find themselves needing to comply with the CMMC framework. KLC Consulting has a rich history of serving these industries, ensuring they meet and maintain the required CMMC standards.
However, it’s essential to note that not all companies working with the DoD require a CMMC assessment. For instance, businesses that sell commercially off-the-shelf products to the DoD might be exempt from this requirement. Understanding these nuances is crucial to ensure compliance without incurring unnecessary costs.

The CMMC framework, while comprehensive, can be complex. Many businesses, especially those new to DoD contracts, might find themselves unsure about their assessment requirements. This is where expert guidance becomes invaluable.
