Ignyte CMMC Level 1 Pre-Assessment

Ignyte's pre-assessment tool is designed based on the most current version of the DoD Cybersecurity Maturity Model 
Certification (CMMC). It covers only CMMC Level 1 (AKA Basic Cyber Hygiene).  The CMMC is part of an effort focused on the security and resiliency of the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) sector.
The CMMC streamlines many cybersecurity standards into one model. The majority of these domains originate from the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) Publication 200 and related standards from NIST SP 800-171. The CMMC is organized into 17 "domains" and related processes and practices around cybersecurity. Learn about the CMMC domains and practices through the OSD official CMMC briefing.
There are 6 domains associated with Level 1:
  • Access Control
  • Identification and Authentication
  • Media Protection
  • Physical Protection
  • Systems and Communication Protection
  • System and Information Integrity


Using Igyte Pre-Assessment to prepare for CMMC Level 1


Ignyte is designed to explain the practices associated with each domain, then ask self-assessment questions about each practice. You can add notes about how you comply with a practice/control by adding a description, then saving the results for future reference.  During our actual audit, your CMMC assessor/auditor may refer to these notes as part of your organization's "body of evidence".

How long will it take to complete the Ignyte Pre-Assessment?

Ignyte's CMMC Pre-Assessment is designed around the 6 domains and 17 practices required for CMMC Level 1. The time to complete all the questions varies, but the average is 15-20 minutes.

Will I receive a score?

You will receive a "readiness" score for each of the 6 domains based on your answers. Our team can help you interpret lower scores and close gaps after you finish the assessment. Please note, a maximum score in any domain DOES NOT CONSTITUTE CMMC COMPLIANCE.
