NORTH PROVIDENCE, R.I., March 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Compass IT Compliance, a leading United States cybersecurity services provider announced today that it has been approved as a Registered Provider Organization (RPO) by the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB). The firm is now authorized to provide advice, consulting, and recommendations to Department of Defense (DoD) contractors seeking to meet the mandatory CMMC contract requirements for upcoming projects.
CMMC is a unifying standard for the implementation of cybersecurity across the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). The CMMC framework includes a comprehensive and scalable certification element to verify the implementation of processes and practices associated with the achievement of a cybersecurity maturity level. CMMC is designed to provide increased assurance to the Department that a DIB company can adequately protect sensitive unclassified information, accounting for information flow down to subcontractors in a multi-tier supply chain.
How can Compass IT Compliance help?
The CMMC Model has five defined levels, each with a set of supporting practices and processes. Practices range from Level 1 (basic cyber hygiene) to Level 5 (advanced/progressive). To meet a specific CMMC level, an organization must meet the practices and processes within that level and all levels below. The DoD will specify the required CMMC level an organization must possess when releasing Requests for Information (RFIs) and Requests for Proposals (RFPs).
Through Compass IT Compliance’s CMMC Readiness Review, your current compliance with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (most recent version and desired level) will be evaluated. Our Compliance Professionals will identify gaps in controls and key work areas that your organization must address to prepare for a CMMC assessment with a C3PAO.
