Are looking to understand documenting your scope for your SSP? How does the NIST SP 800-171 Scope of Applicability and CMMC Assessment Scope fit in the SSP?

In this At the CMMC Churns, we take the Scope of Applicability, turn it into a diagram, and incorporate it into your SSP. Yes, incredibly exciting!!! A very foundational to building a solid SSP.

This Documenting your Scope episode builds on two previous Churns episodes:

  1. How to apply the NIST SP 800-171 Scope of Applicability (
  2. The Three Descoping Methods ( We also reference the NIST SP 800-171 and CMMC Level 2 Assessment Scoping Process Diagram at
