The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a new Department of Defense (DoD) process to ensure that all suppliers in the Defense Industrial Base have a base level of cybersecurity capability. DoD is planning to set CMMC Maturity Level requirements in RFPs starting in late 2020. DoD suppliers will need to be certified by a designated third party. CMMC self-certification will not be accepted. Suppliers that are not certified will not be able to win new DoD contracts individually or as part of a team.NCG Blog Post: Preparation and Support for the Department of Defense Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)

For some companies the CMMC process will be straightforward and similar to other maturity model frameworks and audits they currently support. For those with robust cybersecurity practices, but have not been through similar reviews, the effort may focus on documentation and being able to represent their current state compared to CMMC model. For other organizations, getting ready for certification could entail implementation and documentation of new practices and processes.
Companies need to demonstrate cybersecurity practice and process performance, along with supporting documentation, to become certified.
