Getting CMMC Certified in Los Angeles, California (CA)
In this ever deceiving world, every Company is cautious enough to keep the Company’s personal information highly classified and safe. Companies take essential measures to protect their data from being stolen or wrongly used. Many cases are known where a company’s data was stolen and used to make duplicate products at lower prices. Such activities can lead to the downfall of the Company or any organization.
And in some cases, the highly classified information of the customers, including their personal details, is stolen and misused. With the rise in cyber technologies, there has also been a rise in cyber frauds and information stealing in corporate sectors. To counter this problem, the Department of Defense (DoD) developed a certification and compliance process that ensures that the contractors have the proper controls required to protect sensitive data. This is called the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC).
What is CMMC?
It is a unified standard that helps implement cybersecurity across the defense industrial base (DIB), which includes over 300,000 companies all over Los Angeles, California (CA) in the supply chain. It helps protect sensitive defense information and other personal information located on the contractor’s information systems.
What are the Objectives of CMMC?
The CMMC is the certification procedure issued by DoD for assessing the online security environment of the contracted companies. Main objectives of the CMMC are:
- To ensure that contractors are strong enough to defend against current and future cyber-attacks or risks.
- To verify that contractors have strong management to protect the Controlled Unclassified Information present in DIB’s network systems.
- To assure the working of security to contractors by providing an independent third party validation.
- To establish different levels of compliance that is fit to protect from a different level of risk.
- To provide improved security at affordable costs to big and small.
How to Get CMMC Certified?
As a company, you can’t certify on your own under CMMC. Well, don’t worry. We will help you implement and apply for CMMC certification from a third party certificate issuing body. We at ISO Pros provide advisory services, schedule the assessments you have to appear in, train the individual assessors for your Company, and finally review the results with Accreditation Body Quality Auditors.
We manage the assessment process for the organizations that are interested in making compliance with the CMMC. Companies seeking the CMMC Certification first have to decide which maturity level they want to be audited for compliance from the following five levels:
- Level 1: Basic Cyber Hygiene
- Level 2: Intermediate Cyber Hygiene
- Level 3: Good Cyber Hygiene
- Level 4: Proactive
- Level 5: Advanced / Progressive
For detailed knowledge of each level and determine the best suited for you, kindly give us a call and discuss it with our experts. Then we will help you schedule an assessment with the certified independent assessor. The independent assessor will look for security gaps, weaknesses and will determine whether or not your Company’s security environment meets the CMMC requirements necessary for that specific level.
After achieving compliance at the level you desire, a CMMC Certification will be of public knowledge as recognition of your security measures. Call us not to begin the implementation procedure immediately.
