Under the CMMC, the term FCI stands for Federal Contract Information

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a framework that aims to strengthen the cybersecurity posture of organizations working with the United States Department of Defense (DoD).

Under the CMMC, the term FCI stands for Federal Contract Information. FCI refers to information that is provided by or generated for the government under a contract to develop or deliver a product or service to the federal government, but is not intended for public release.

The CMMC requirements for FCI focus on protecting this sensitive information from unauthorized access, disclosure, or compromise. Organizations that handle FCI are required to implement specific cybersecurity controls and processes to safeguard the confidentiality and integrity of the information. These controls may include access control mechanisms, encryption, network security measures, and incident response protocols.

By implementing the CMMC FCI requirements, organizations demonstrate their commitment to protecting sensitive information and reducing the risk of cyber threats. Compliance with CMMC requirements for FCI can enhance an organization’s ability to participate in DoD contracts, as it is becoming a mandatory requirement for defense procurement.
