The January 2021 deadline to implement new cybersecurity compliance requirements is quickly approaching. All companies that do business with the DoD need to obtain Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) or NIST 800-171 certification or risk losing contracts.
Since a side of our business does work with the government, we've already been through the process of becoming contract-ready. Our deep and documented compliance expertise can help you successfully navigate your own path to CMMC or NIST certification.
Based on your goals and the DoD contracts you're bidding on, this step will determine which level of certification you need to adopt.
A gap assessment identifies what technologies and processes your company needs to meet the appropriate CMMC- or NIST-level requirements.
Evaluate and select the tools that will help you secure and protect sensitive information.
In addition to adopting new technologies, compliance readiness demands that practices and processes related to physical security and personnel behavior are in place.
For companies seeking CMMC compliance, a third-party assessor will conduct an evaluation to determine whether you've successfully met the criteria.
Once your network systems are compliant, continuously monitor them to prevent security breaches or incidents.
