CMMC compliance ensures that companies entering into contracts with the Department of Defense to provide goods and services have adequate safeguards in place to protect their data.
Meeting CMMC requirements means integrating multiple solutions. We help DoD contractors identify the right people to get involved, assess the gaps in your performance compared to the standard, help you weigh your options, and build a plan of action.
If you’re wondering, how do I know if I need CMMC? As a rule, any contractor who is actively engaged with the Department of Defense or looking to pursue a contract with the Department of Defense will need to receive a CMMC. This includes all suppliers at all tiers along the supply chain, small businesses, commercial item contractors and foreign suppliers.
Why its important to have a Gap Assessment? A gap assessment helps you measure your current level of compliance. It also assesses how effective your existing internal controls are and exposes areas where CMMC compliance is not upheld.
The Benefits of Certification The obvious benefit of the CMMC is compliance with a new standard. This will allow you to not lose time and potential contracts. After all, the CMMC will soon be a requirement for all government contracts.
However, there are other benefits to the CMMC. For instance, it allows your company to review and reduce cyber risk by identifying gaps in your processes and procedures. It can help you improve internal controls and build out existing structures to better be prepared to prevent, detect and respond should a cyber breach occur. CMMC also allows your organization to verify your cybersecurity requirements are working, rather than waiting until the breach occurs.
