CMMC doesn’t have to hobble your manpower or your budgets
The focus on security compliance and protecting our government assets and critical infrastructure has never been more urgent. If you are doing business with the DoD as a contractor and you handle controlled unclassified information (CUI), you will need to comply with the same 110 NIST 800-171 security controls the DoD complies with.
Compliance is not a one-time process. Instead, it is a continuous cycle of assessing the environment, re-mediating the issues, and then reporting and filing it because this is what we do. Like CMMC and the IRS, we see more and more government mandates coming down on industry as we go forward. These regulations are required, and non-compliance will result in the loss of your contract with the government. You are not alone, and we are here to help.
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) requirement from the U.S. Department of Defense mandates that DoD contractors obtain certification to ensure appropriate levels of cybersecurity practices are in place to meet “basic cyber hygiene,” as well as protect CUI that resides on partner systems. This is the first time the DoD will require contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers to be certified to participate in the DoD supply chain.
