CMMC Certification Overview

Cyber AB is your trusted partner in achieving CMMC certification readiness for your organization. With the release of version 2.0 of the CMMC standards by the Department of Defense (DoD) on November 17, 2021, it is crucial for every company involved in DoD contracts or subcontracts, dealing with Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) or Federal Contract Information (FCI), to be CMMC certified at one of the three levels of the maturity model.

Although the certification process for Organizations Seeking Assessment (OSCs) is yet to begin, it is essential for organizations to start implementing the CMMC standard, closely aligned with NIST SP 800-171 (and NIST SP 800-172 for Level 3 Certifications). Prime contractors should also take steps to prepare their subcontractors, as the specific contract awarded will determine the required CMMC certification level.

Navigating the CMMC certification process can be complex and time-consuming, especially for organizations that are new to the requirements and standards. That's why it's crucial to leverage the expertise of a trusted third-party organization that has been authorized by the Cyber AB to assist you on this journey.

Utilizing a third-party for CMMC certification is highly valuable and recommended:

  1. Expert Guidance: A qualified Registered Provider Organization (RPO) has in-depth knowledge and experience in the CMMC framework. They understand the intricacies of the requirements, controls, and assessment processes. By partnering with an RPO, you gain access to their expertise, ensuring that your organization is on the right track towards certification.

  2. Objective Assessment: A third-party assessment brings an unbiased perspective to the certification process. RPOs follow standardized procedures and criteria when evaluating your organization's adherence to the CMMC standards. This impartial assessment provides credibility and confidence to both your organization and the DoD.

  3. Compliance Assurance: Achieving CMMC certification is not just a one-time event but an ongoing commitment to maintaining security and compliance. An RPO can help you establish robust processes and practices to ensure continuous compliance with the evolving CMMC requirements. They provide guidance on implementing necessary controls, monitoring security measures, and conducting periodic assessments.

  4. Time and Cost Efficiency: Attempting to navigate the certification process alone can be time-consuming and resource-intensive. RPOs streamline the assessment process, leveraging their knowledge and experience to help you achieve certification more efficiently. They can guide you in prioritizing efforts, identifying gaps, and implementing the necessary controls effectively, saving you valuable time and resources.

  5. Industry Recognition: Partnering with a reputable RPO like those available in Cyber AB's marketplace enhances your organization's credibility. It demonstrates your commitment to cybersecurity and adherence to industry best practices. This recognition can also give you a competitive edge, positioning your organization as a trusted partner for DoD contracts.

By utilizing an RPO, you can confidently navigate the complexities of the CMMC certification process, ensuring that your organization meets the required security standards.
