As cyber threats continue to increase in frequency and sophistication, the Department of Defense (DoD) has introduced a set of cybersecurity standards for all contractors and subcontractors. These standards are known as Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) and are necessary to comply with if your business wants to bid on DoD contracts.
Other compliance certifications exist, too, such as NIST 800-171, which is required for all businesses that handle controlled unclassified information, and DFARS, which requires defense contractors to comply with NIST 800-171.
Certified third-party auditing organizations (C3PAOs) are being certified, processes are being finalized, and self-assessments are being uploaded. Is your business scrambling to get ready? Let Direct iT help. With over 18 years in business helping DoD subcontractors and contractors with security and compliance, we have the knowledge and skills to help you meet DoD requirements.
When your business needs help with its DoD self-assessment, our comprehensive suite of CMMC compliance services is just what you need! You’ll be able to achieve and maintain compliance with our gap analysis and scoping, policy and process remediation, systems implementation, and more.
Your policies and processes will be under review as we determine your strengths and weaknesses in relation to the CMMC standards. We help develop, test, and implement processes aligning with the organization's goals and objectives while fulfilling CMMC compliance so that you can get certified.
A gap analysis begins with an in-depth analysis of your existing cybersecurity posture. We’ll find gaps in your cybersecurity and determine the appropriate scope of the project. Based on how your cybersecurity standards match CMMC requirements, we’ll develop a roadmap to get your standards up to par.
Sometimes clients need to upgrade their existing infrastructure or integrate new technologies to receive their compliance certificate. Our expertise can help meet these standards and will look at improving your network security, access control, and incident response.
Businesses are being required to submit the self-assessments to the DoD right now. We can help you conduct your self-audits to ensure compliance and provide recommendations for improvement. These self-assessments help you prepare for your official CMMC audit, so you must be prepared.
One of the requirements of the CMMC certification is to have a robust threat intelligence program in place. You need to be able to monitor for potential threats and vulnerabilities and take steps to mitigate those risks. We can help you monitor these threats with our real-time information and ongoing monitoring.
For DoD contractors and subcontractors, we help you meet the requirements under the Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS). This database contains data points related to supplier performance and services as a risk management tool for the DoD. Our expertise in DFARS can help you get compliant.
The DoD isn’t going lightly on businesses that work with them. If you want to keep your existing DoD contracts or bid on them in the future, you need our CMMC compliance services. You’ll get the help you need to deploy security technologies, develop policies and procedures, and provide employee training. Schedule your 30-minute consultation today to get started!
When you are ready to get started with CMMC compliance services, we make it easy! We’ll work with you through these steps to ensure you are prepared for your DoD audit.
We work together to analyze your current processes, policies, and systems and determine which processes and systems are in scope for DoD contracts (including all processes and systems that handle Controlled Unclassified Information or CUI). Then we analyze those processes based on the 17 practice requirements in CMMC and identify any potential gaps or issues.
We remediate your processes and policy documents to ensure that all processes and training comply with CMMC requirements. This step is necessary if you want to do future business with the DoD, but it also helps to mitigate cyber risks. Therefore, your business is better protected with enhanced security policies that can help prevent cyber attacks.
Your systems may also need to be updated. Direct iT can assist in deploying technical systems and security solutions where necessary to meet CMMC requirements, including FedRAMP-certified cloud services and Office 365 GCC / Government Cloud. Meeting these guidelines gives you a competitive advantage over other businesses that have not yet achieved certification.
Many organizations are being required to submit their self-audit to the DoD now. We will assist with performing a self-audit following CMMC guidelines. Some steps involved with your self-audit include finding where your cybersecurity policies fall short of the CMMC requirements and developing a remediation plan to address the deficiency.
