Understanding DFARS, NIST, CUI, and CMMC   

DFARS, NIST, CUI, and CMMC are all elements of the compliance equation. Understanding the relationship between these elements is crucial for prime contractors and subcontractors throughout the DoD supply chain.

  • DFARS clauses are contractual requirements that often flow down from primes to subs and define the security and cybersecurity measures DIB companies must meet to win and keep DoD business.   
  • The DFARS 7012 clause sets the mandate for protecting sensitive data known as controlled unclassified information (CUI) within the DIB.  
  • NIST, or the National Institute of Standards and Technology, defines specific standards, like NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-171, for the cybersecurity requirements to protect CUI that get incorporated into DFARS clauses. 
  • CMMC, or Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification, which will be enacted via DFARS 7021, takes the self-assessment approach defined in DFARS 7012 one step further, requiring CMMC third-party assessment organizations (C3PAOs) to assess an organization’s NIST SP 800-171 compliance status.
