CMMC: Acronyms to Know

By Heather Bennett

October 24, 2022

Have you ever been in a conversation where everyone used letters instead of words and you had no clue what they were talking about? This happens quite often in the IT and cybersecurity world. Groups of people that specialize in these areas shorten frequently used terms to make conversations go faster. Someone from outside that group may not be familiar with those acronyms and they may be lost as to the relevance of those acronyms to the conversation.

The first time I heard this happening, I thought my colleagues were speaking a foreign language. Luckily, with time and exposure I began to understand what the acronyms meant. This will happen to you as you begin to use and understand the language of CMMC. But until then, I have compiled a list of acronyms and their meanings to help increase your knowledge about CMMC and fast-track you to CMMC conversation excellence!
