Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification - CMMC

Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a compliance initiative for any business that operates within the Department of Defense (DoD) ecosystem. The CMMC framework aims to enhance the security of controlled unclassified information (CUI) and federal contract information (FCI). Starting as early as late 2022, businesses will be required to reach a certain level of maturity before they can be awarded a new DoD contract.

What Is CMMC?

CMMC is a compliance requirement for providing services in the DoD ecosystem. It ensures that businesses working with the DoD have sufficient safeguards to protect their network data.

Although CMMC compliance includes other cybersecurity standards like the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), it utilizes a maturity model for its standardization framework. Depending on your level of contact, you will be required to obtain a specific maturity level certification. These certifications range from Level 1 Basic Cyber Hygiene to level 5 Advanced Safeguards.

What CMMC Consulting Services Does Contigo Offer?

Our CMMC consulting services include a gap analysis delivered by our compliance managers. Our CMMC compliance analysis helps you determine your current compliance level. Our Registered Practitioners will help you reach the level needed to be cybersecurity compliant depending on the level of maturity your business needs!

How do I get My Business CMMC Certified?

Getting CMMC compliant requires two steps. First, schedule a pre-assessment with one of our Registered Practitioners (RP). In this process, our RP will evaluate what level of maturity your business will need to continue operations. The RP will closely evaluate the practices already implemented within your company and help you fill in the gaps to reach the correct level of maturity.

Second, you will schedule your assessment with a CMMC Third-Party Assessor Organization (C3PAO). After approval, your business will be capable of biding on contracts or working for a contractor.
