What is CMMC?
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification is the government’s way of keeping tabs on the security of its potential defense vendors. It provides a mechanism for the DOD to ensure their vendors are ready to work with the department. It focuses on certifying the “maturity” and “capability” of each DOD vendor’s security processes, practices, and methods. It also helps set goals and priorities for them to make improvements. The DOD will add CMMC levels to each RFP, meaning vendors who don’t possess mature enough processes may not even be allowed to submit for that proposal.
How Does FRSecure Approach CMMC Engagements?
The CMMC is based off of industry standards that we already use in our unique risk assessment scoring methodology. Overlaying your risk assessment results to the five CMMC levels, your organization will quickly be able to see where it stands in each of the levels. Knowing what level you want or need to be at and how you scored there, we’ll look to see where the gaps in compliance are—and then provide you with a roadmap and dedicated security resource to make sure you get to that point by the time the requirements take effect.
