Published Apr 28 2022 09:10 AM 1,604 Views

Since its first release in 2020, the Microsoft Sentinel Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification workbook has remained one of the most consumed Sentinel content packages in Azure Government.  


As more organizations work toward compliance against the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), this offering was built to help customers, especially in the US government space, meet and adhere to CMMC requirements.  


This offering has reached a user community of thousands of security professionals, who have given us invaluable feedback on how to improve the content. Incorporating these insights, we are excited to announce the next evolution of this content in the Microsoft Sentinel: Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification 2.0 Solution. This solution features a redesigned user interface, new control card layouts, dozens of new visualizations, better-together integrations with Microsoft Defender for Cloud and alerting rules to actively monitor/alert on compliance posture deviations across each CMMC 2.0 control family.  


The result is a powerful offering that empowers governance and compliance teams to design, build, monitor, and respond to CMMC 2.0 requirements across Microsoft, third party, hybrid, on-premises, and multi-cloud workloads.  


Watch the demo to learn more: 




The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) 2.0 model consists of processes and cybersecurity best practices from multiple cybersecurity standards, frameworks, and references, in addition to inputs from the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) and Department of Defense (DoD) stakeholders. The CMMC 2.0 model specifies three levels: Level 1 (Foundational) to Level 3 (Advanced).
