Leveraging Microsoft Defender for Endpoint for CMMC 2.0

Following the announcement of the Cyber Security Maturity Model Certification programme (CMMC) 2.0 by the US Department of Defense (DoD) in November 2021, businesses have been forced to fast track their cyber security development and increase their budgets.

This reworked CMMC is designed to improve cyber security resilience and standards throughout the DoD’s supply chain as well as effectively safeguard sensitive information and improve accountability. Based upon the NIST SP 800-171 and SP 800-172 practices, businesses that are required to meet levels 1, 2, or 3 of this new framework will have to review their cyber security programme imminently and make the necessary changes.
