If you have information or critical functions that depend on information technology systems that might be vulnerable to theft, disruption, or corruption, consider Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) consulting services with Business Transformation Institute, Inc. The Department of Defense (DoD) developed the CMMC model with two primary goals in mind — safeguard unclassified information and protect Federal contact information that is not meant for public access. CMMC compliance will be required for Federal contractors. Given the number of cybercriminals and attackers in the world, implementing CMMC is smart for everyone.
The CMMC framework, which was newly released on January 30th, 2020, features five levels of cybersecurity maturity processes and best practices to protect sensitive information and IT systems from any potential threats.
The five levels of the CMMC model are as follows:
- Level one: Performed; basic cyber hygiene.
- Level two: Documented; intermediate cyber hygiene.
- Level three: Managed; good cyber hygiene.
- Level four: Reviewed; proactive.
- Level five: Optimizing; advanced/progressive.
All Department of Defense contracts will include a CMMC compliance requirement beginning in the fall of 2020. The CMMC version 1.0 was released in January 2020, and minor updates to the standard have been released throughout 2020. Prior to requiring all contracts to have a CMMC requirement, the DoD will choose a subset of contracts for the application of the requirement. While all DoD contracts do not yet have the CMMC requirement, it is recommended that companies that have DoD contracts prepare for the requirement.
We will publish more information on any CMMC requirement updates as they occur. Given that the time for some companies to demonstrate compliance will be short, organizations should consider starting implementation now to avoid a deadline-driven crunch.
Importance of CMMC Compliance Services
In addition to meeting DoD requirements, CMMC consulting services are important to every organization for a variety of reasons. First, these services will optimize your organization’s cybersecurity processes to keep your most essential software and information safe and secure from threats.
The CMMC model will develop a range of standards and best practices, chart out controls across the five maturity levels, and implement these benchmarks to reduce the risk of cyber hazards. When your systems are free of threats, you can trust that your most sensitive information is secure and invulnerable to external forces.
At BTI, we work to make our CMMC compliance services as affordable and effective as possible at all CMMC levels.
