Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Readiness Assessment
*CMMC certified assessors (C3PAOs) have not yet been established. Prepare for CMMC compliance now with a Readiness Assessment.
CMMC: What, Why & Who?
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a unified standard developed by the Department of Defense (DoD) in response to increased cybersecurity threats across the defense supply chain. CMMC provides a clear set of cybersecurity standards that will be required for all DoD contractors and suppliers to comply with prior to doing business.
Understanding, identifying and road mapping your current cybersecurity program against CMMC certified supplier requirements is a critical first step in this multi-level certification process. Starting in Fall 2020 a number of Department of Defense RFPs will include a requirement that ALL bidding contractors meet a minimum Level 1 CMMC to qualify.
Visit The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment (OUSD(A&S)) for more information about CMMC.
CMMC Readiness: Analysis to Certification
A 3-step process to achieve CMMC certification.
Although accreditation procedures and certified accreditors have not yet been established early preparation is key for a more efficient CMMC assessment with positive certification results. Our consultants assist all DoD contractors, sub-contractors and suppliers in reviewing current cybersecurity practices, policies and procedures in place against all mandatory CMMC compliance requirements which span 5 certification levels and encompass 43 capabilities across 17 domains. The CMMC Gap Analysis provides a detailed, actionable deliverable to address basic to advanced cyber hygiene processes and practices requirements.
The remediation process takes action based on the CMMC Gap Analysis results to address cyber hygiene process and practice requirements. Our team of cybersecurity experts will provide the skills and expertise required to identify and implement solutions that enable compliance with your organization’s appropriate certification level. We will assist you with implementing the correct controls, write appropriate policies and track compliance activities.
The Department of Defense RFPs will begin to include a requirement that ALL contractors, subcontractors and suppliers meet a minimum Level 1 CMMC to qualify to bid starting Fall 2020. The CMMC Accreditation Body recommends planning for certification a minimum of 6 months in advance. DoD contractors will be better aligned to achieve certification by completing the CMMC Gap Analysis and CMMC Compliance Remediation in advance of scheduling, completing and receiving certification.
