Why CMMC is important

Prepare for new DoD cybersecurity standards

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a set of cybersecurity standards developed by the Department of Defense to protect defense contractors from Cyber Attacks. The certification is now required for all contractors who either do business or want to do business with the DoD. It is also more comprehensive and challenging to prepare for than many earlier efforts, such as DFARS. The absence of Plan of Action and Milestones (POAMs), which were found in DFARs and FAR has further complicated the CMMC achievement process.

CMMC Readiness

Many organizations, in addition to current government contractors and prospects, are looking to proactively work toward CMMC compliance, as they see this as an adoptable standard for critical infrastructure, or potentially replacing or enhancing legacy standards. This is a good idea overall, as the CMMC is a much more robust standard than many others and can provide a more accurate perspective of relative cyber risk to an organization. It’s also a good idea for sub-contractors to adopt the CMMC as they may be required to in the near future. 

IE’s CMMC readiness engagements can prepare your organization for CMMC audit and accreditation much more efficiently and in a more cost-effective process than going it alone. We have the experience to guide organizations to avoid the pit falls and  issues that can paralyze organizations who are trying to become compliant.

CMMC Methodology with IE

What to expect during your CMMC Readiness Assessment.

  • Assessment & Analysis

  • Report & Review

  • Deliverables

Assessment & Analysis

IE will proceed to collect data on the current customer cybersecurity environment domains, processes, capabilities and practices. This will be gathered from existing customer documentation as well as form interviews with customer personnel. Data gathered will be compared to CMMC requirements to determine if each is deficient, meets, or exceeds the applicable standards. Supplemental analysis will be performed as necessary to ensure that the customer data used reflects the cybersecurity environment at time of assessment and the latest CMMC standards. 

Report & Review

The engagement will conclude with a presentation of the findings. This will include a review of the applicable CMMC standards and the organization’s ability to satisfy each. For each CMMC requirement not met, IE will present an action plan for closing the gap. CMMC requirements already satisfied will also be reviewed, along with any observed areas of excellence. Finally, general guidance will be presented on the attainment of higher levels of CMMC maturity in the future. 

Deliverables

All information reviewed with the customer will be documented for the customer to use in advancing their CMMC maturity. This will include the CMMC standards used for the assessment, assessment artifacts and evidence, assessment findings, and guidance on fulfilling any unmet CMMC requirements.
