CMMC Practice Requirement:
Escort visitors and monitor visitor activity.
CMMC Requirement Explanation:
By requiring visitors to sign in at the reception desk you can track their access to your facility. By assigning an escort to a visitor you can monitor them while they are visiting. This reduces the likelihood of them accessing your systems and information.
Example CMMC Implementation:
Provide visitors with a visitor badge. Accompany visitors while they are in your facility. Have visitors sign in and sign out of a sign-in sheet (e.g. a sign-in sheet at the front desk).
- Scenario 1:
A client comes to visit your company. Upon arrival, he signs in at the front desk. You also provide him with an escort and visitor's badge. The escort accompanies the client throughout the day. Before the client leaves he signs out at the front desk and returns his badge.
