Risk Cognizance offers CMMC Consulting Services that are designed to provide your organization with the tools and expertise need for CMMC 2.0 Compliance.

Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a unified standard for implementing cybersecurity across DoD contractors. CMMC has been in development for a number of years, but the first details on the framework were released in January 2020. CMMC framework “maturity” model, in which audits will be conducted by third-party assessors, and firms will be assigned a “level” that represents the cybersecurity protections they have in place. Prior to the CMMC, companies could self-certify their compliance and hide security gaps to continue to provide products and services to DoD.

How Can Risk Cognizance Help Your Organization With CMMC 2.0?

  • CMMC scope the situation. First, Risk Cognizance will help you identify any federal information in your custody that falls into one of the National Archive’s 22 categories of CUI. Then we’ll assess the people, processes, and technologies in your organization that store, process, or transmit CUI or provide security and administration to the CUI in your care.

  • Identify the CMMC 2.0 level and security controls you need. Each CMMC level has an assigned set of requirements that must be fully implemented in order to achieve the corresponding level. Risk Cognizance will identify the controls you need to comply with, supplemented by best-practice configuration requirements for the hardware, software, and networks involved. We’ll document the security safeguards you have in place, mapping each mechanism for securing and protecting the CUI to the relevant security controls.

  • Review and define your CMMC security architecture. We’ll evaluate the current architecture of your CUI-related systems and recommend any modifications needed to meet the requirements of CMMC.

  • Assess your CMMC compliance reequipments with security controls. We start by assessing your current state of compliance with the identified security controls. We then plan and conduct a self-assessment, which will include compliance and vulnerability testing of technical controls and evaluation of security policies, procedures, and administrative controls through interviews, reviews, and inspections.

  • Address anything that needs remediation. After identifying any vulnerabilities or areas of non-compliance, we’ll identify strategies and solutions that will assist in achieving the required level of compliance and maturity.

  • Plan for continuous compliance. CMMC goes beyond system compliance. In order for an organization to achieve levels 1-3, the organization must prove the maturation of established processes and practices. In addition, after achieving CMMC compliance via a CMMC-AB certified third-party assessor, you must remain compliant and undergo reassessment every three years. We will assist you in creating a continuous monitoring strategy that will support continuous compliance in the years to come.
