Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Compliance

The new compliance requirement for defense contractors

The CMMC sets new data security requirements for all 300,000+ contractors working with the US Department of Defense.

The three CMMC 2.0 levels replace the five that existed under CMMC 1.0 regulations. Depending on the sensitivity of the data you handle, you'll need to meet one of the three levels of cybersecurity preparedness to bid on a DoD request for proposal.

Who needs to be

All businesses bidding on DoD contracts are required to have the CMMC. The requirements also apply to subcontractors in the bidder’s supply chain.

CMMC 2.0 requires certification by a third-party assessor for levels two and three, while self-certification is now an option for level one. The deadline for CMMC 2.0 adherence is forecasted to be in 2023.

Gap Assessment

Before the CMMC audit, there is an important step you should take to ensure you meet the requirements. Known as a Gap Assessment, it identifies the weaknesses in your business’s security posture and recommends ways to strengthen them.

We can help make sure you’re compliant so you can bid on the contracts that are critical to your business.

Whichever level you are trying to achieve, the Gap Assessment should be performed so there are no surprises come audit time.

Let us assess all the gaps in your cybersecurity posture and deliver a plan to remediate them so you can achieve CMMC certification.
