Worried about tackling the lengthy CMMC audit process? We’ve got you covered. ActZero has benchmarked our MDR capabilities against CMMC control practices to accelerate your efforts.
In an effort to increase security of its supply chain, the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition & Sustainment launched the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), and it's expected to be in force for the largest providers by December 31, 2021. Many contractors, especially those dealing with Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), will require their subcontractors and suppliers to achieve Level 3 certification, at minimum by March 2022.
For its part, the CMMC is quickly ramping up its auditing capabilities with a bench of Third-Party Assessor Organizations, also known as “C3PAOs”. With C3PAOs now in place, eliminating the ability for organizations to use ‘lack of auditors’ as an excuse for non-compliance. If you do business with the DoD, you need to get CMMC compliant NOW.
The Challenge: The bottleneck has begun
Reaching CMMC compliance will be a time-consuming effort, with many expecting the end-to-end process of passing through the initial stages of CMMC compliance to take at least six months. Evidence collection requires demonstration of habitual adherence (doing it for a long time) which most customers will likely require in Q1 of next year. Organizations without the time and resources available to undertake these efforts may find themselves, and who haven’t already begun the process to certify will find it increasingly difficult to achieve CMMC compliance in time to avoid losing business.
