Forest City Gear Attains Level 2 CMMC 2.0 Compliance

October 5, 2023

Forest City Gear has updated its technology infrastructure and policies in compliance with Level 2 Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) 2.0. The CMMC program ensures the protection of federal contract information and controlled unclassified information for suppliers within the U.S. Department of Defense’s supply chain. Through self-assessments aligned with NIST SP 800.171, Forest City Gear policies have proven to meet the 110 practices required for CMMC 2.0 compliance.

Forest City Gear’s Leadership Team set a strategic goal in 2022 to become an early adopter of CMMC 2.0. “Although CMMC 2.0 certification is not yet a requirement for companies in our position in the supply chain, we recognize the importance of proactively dedicating time and resources to reinforcing our technology infrastructure and security policies,” said Jared Lyford, Director of Operations. “With the 19 new policies and procedures we’ve implemented, FCG has reached Level 2 compliance before certification even becomes available for prime contractors.”

Forest City Gear plans to seek CMMC 2.0 certification as soon as it becomes available, possibly as early as next year.
