Department of Defense contractors and subcontractors are required to adhere to the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). CMMC is a comprehensive framework to protect the defense industrial base’s (DIB) sensitive unclassified information from frequent and increasingly complex cyberattacks. Under CMMC, a third-party assessment of your company’s compliance with NIST SP 800-171 and parts of NIST 800-172 will be required to bid on most DoD contracts.
If CMMC is required for a contract your company wishes to bid on, you will not be eligible until you have received the certification. Depending on the size of your organization and the maturity of your information security program, it could take more than a year to be ready for a formal CMMC assessment from a Certified Third-Party Assessor Organization.
Layer 8 Security is a Registered Practitioner Organization (RPO) offering a suite of services to organizations seeking CMMC compliance. Please contact us to learn more about the certification process, including:
