How Does Level 2 Compare With Level 1?
The most significant differences between CMMC level 1 and level 2 come from the process maturity of both levels. This can also be referred to as ongoing security management. Level 1 requires defense contractors to establish policies, practices and a plan to implement the required security elements.
Level 2 takes that significant step further by also requiring a detailed review of those policies and practices, along with dedicated resources to meet the plan and activities as stated. These extra measures help to ensure that security solutions are implemented correctly and able to be fully effective. Achieving level 2 certification means your organizations has implemented the appropriate solutions and is actively monitoring them.
