Do you store, process or transmit Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and have an active contract with the Department of Defense? Or are you bidding on a new contract with the DoD?

Then you need to obtain a Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC).

No certification, no contract, it’s as simple as that.

What if you’re not working with the DoD, but instead with another federal agency requiring adherence to NIST Special Publication 800-171? Those requirement sets are the same as CMMC.

Bottom line: an Authorized Certification Assessment determines whether or not you get to do business with government agencies like the DoD. You have a lot riding on the results of that assessment. And that means you need a smart, capable certification partner. Talk to us today.
