The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a standard for creating and executing cybersecurity safeguards within the defense industrial base (DIB). In response to the escalating cybersecurity threats faced by contractors, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) released version 1.0 of the CMMC on January 31, 2020 as part of a phased rollout approach. CMMC certification is already required for some DoD contracts and is expected to become a requirement for any defense contractors or vendors that are, or wish to, work with the Department of Defense.
With technology evolving at a rapid pace, contractors and subcontractors must ensure that they have the right cybersecurity processes and practices in place. The CMMC has established five certification levels that signify maturity of a business’s cybersecurity infrastructure to keep sensitive government data safe on contractor’s information systems. Each level is tiered and requires compliance with requirements on lower levels.
SeaGlass Technology helps DoD contractors gain a deeper understanding of the security risks they face and how they can guard against these threats. Our team of knowledgeable IT security compliance experts can help businesses better manage their IT systems, remain compliant and gain a competitive edge in their industry.
Assessment & Advisory Services
Businesses that aim to comply with CMMC must first identify what level of compliance they need to reach. Many DoD requests for proposals (RFPs) require a minimum of level three CMMC compliance. In most cases, all requirements under level three should already be instituted as part of a business’s standard cybersecurity defense program. Ideally, DIB contractors should begin at level 3 and gradually move to levels 4 or 5 as they begin to bid on contracts that involve gaining access to more sensitive data.
SeaGlass Technology CMMC compliance services aim to help businesses become certified at the desired level of CMMC. We work directly with contractors to help them meet all requirements for compliance and implement the proper security controls for targeted and streamlined business processes. Once requisite controls are met, the security program can be audited to compare the new information security program against the desired certification level.
