If your business has contracts with the US Department of Defense, you know that there is a new cybersecurity mandate that your company must follow.
In this episode of The LIPN Podcast, we spoke with Thomas Nohs of DataSoftNow to learn more about these CMMC protocols. Tom and I discussed what this new certification is, what roadmaps and timelines companies need to follow, and how to get the process started to ensure your own company is fully certified in order to win your next bid.
DataSoftNow is an industry leading cybersecurity consulting firm. We are a candidate CMMC Third-Party Assessor Organization (C3PAO) and Registered Practitioner Organization (RPO).
Our consultants have also been trained and hold a certification of a Certified Information System Security Professional (CISSP), Registered Practitioner (RP), and have registered for the CMMC-AB Certified Professional designation.
DataSoftNow was trained by the Department of Defense (DoD) to perform assessments and consulting with the knowledge of a CISSP and training of the CMMC-AB. We can help you understand the requirements, walk you through what you need, and help keep costs down by getting everything done correctly in the first place.
We will help you with the following processes:
We will take a look at your current security protocols and determine how close you are to meeting requirements of your designated CMMC level.
Using our extensive understanding of the NIST SP 800-171 requirements, DataSoftNow can help you build a plan of action and necessary milestones you need to fill in the gaps.
In today's word, cybersecurity is not a simple Yes or No. It’s about practices and processes. And it needs to be built into your company as an integral part of its culture.
If you don't have the internal staffing and skills to build and implement these practices and processes, DataSoftNow can help.
With our SSP-Services we can help take that burden from you and guide your company through all your required procedures.
And since your SSP is a living document, we can also manage and maintain your SSP as required by the CMMC-AB Certification.
When you feel you are ready for your certification, DataSoftNow can bring in a CMMC-AB Registered Practitioner (RP) to perform your Readiness Review. The RP will perform the documented process of cataloging and gathering all your practices and processes’ objective evidence and get it ready for your CMMC Assessor.
By having everything prepared and documented by one of our RP’s, we can make sure you have what you need to pass your CMMC Audit the first time, saving you time and money and reducing the final cost of your certification.
