Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification
The Department of Defense developed the Cybersecurity Maturity Model to continually assess and enhance the cybersecurity posture of its supply chain. Accordingly, all contractors, both prime and subcontractors, will be contractually obligated to become independently certified against its cybersecurity model.
The DOD's intent is to improve the identification and communications of cybersecurity risk by having certified independent third-party organizations conduct audits to demonstrate contractors' compliance with the CMMC.
The CMMC combines various cybersecurity standards and best practices and maps these controls and processes across five maturity levels. With each level of maturity, the required controls and processes grow more sophisticated. For example, Level 1 maturity will encompass basic cyber hygiene requirements whereas Level 5 will require an advanced degree of controls and processes. Each level will clearly define the controls and processes necessary for compliance.
We recommend starting with an assessment of your current controls and processes in an effort to prepare for certification. Understanding where you are is pivotal to determining where you want to be and how you are going to get there.
Our assessment will serve to identify gaps or weaknesses in your current controls and processes and help us develop a plan of action to correct the deficiencies in a timely and scheduled manner.
