The cybersecurity maturity model certification accreditation board (CMMC-AB) released a new CMMC timeline. We discuss how we can help organizations seeking certification.
The CMMC accreditation board released a new timeline for the CMMC program. Companies will be able to undergo CMMC assessments in the Winter/Spring of 2021. Until then the accreditation board suggests that companies start by learning about CMMC. Next, they should identify gaps in their cybersecurity programs. They they need to remediate any identified gaps. Finally they should undergo a CMMC assessment to become certified. Below is what your company needs to be doing now and how our app specifically designed for CMMC can help you.
Learn and Understand About CMMC Requirements
Each cybersecurity maturity model certification practice and process requirement is broken-down in our app making them easy to understand. Our guidance is based on years of experience helping other DoD contractors meet their cybersecurity requirements. Companies our team has helped have passed third-party security assessments by CompTIA.
Our app was specifically designed to help companies identify and remediate gaps in their current cybersecurity program in relation to their CMMC requirements. Via our app, you undergo a gap analysis by answering a series of easy to understand questions and uploading artifacts to support your answers. Our cybersecurity team then reviews your answers and artifacts allowing them to create a custom gap analysis report.
After identifying gaps in your cybersecurity program you need to remediate them. Our app has a gap remediation feature where our cybersecurity specialists detail exactly what you need to do to earn your cybersecurity maturity model certification. You can either choose to implement the remediations using your internal company resources or have us do the implementation for you.
Conduct Official CMMC Assessment
According to the CMMC accreditation board, official CMMC assessments are expected to be available in winter or spring of 2021. By working with us you will be well prepared to earn your cybersecurity maturity model certification. You will be able to quickly respond to any assessor concerns as all of your CMMC assessment related information will be conveniently stored in the app.
