Compliance isn’t a new challenge for government contractors and suppliers, but the announcement of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) requirements has introduced a new aspect of regulation. While many government requirements have been self-assessed or self-certified, CMMC Maturity Levels are confirmed by an outside assessor. To help small- and mid-sized business prepare for these audits, DTS provides an independent Readiness Review.
With a strong background in consulting and government contracting, and thorough knowledge of CMMC requirements, DTS is the ideal partner for companies who may have little or no IT and cybersecurity expertise on staff or may have their needs handled by an outside IT company. Our objective assessment looks at cybersecurity and network practices with an eye for improvement and operational efficiency.
Readiness Review and Report
Our Readiness Review assesses the specific practices required for compliance at the desired Maturity Level. We work with our clients, explaining each practice and detailing what an assessor will require. Our Report helps inform justifications during a CMMC audit, identifies any gaps in your practices, provides recommended remediation steps, and keeps clients informed and compliant with quarterly updates. We can even provide best-practice policy templates.
Our process features:
- Speed: Get an appointment and get started. Our review and report process – up to ML-3 – only takes about two weeks to return actionable answers about CMMC compliance readiness.
- Confidence: DTS has been at the forefront of CMMC since it was introduced in 2019. We follow the RPO Code of Ethics and work directly with the DoD to stay on top of the latest compliance developments and requirements, passing along tips and updates to our clients.
- Experience: Our cybersecurity assessors are CISSP-certified, the gold standard in the industry, and have over 20 years of experience in all aspects of CMMC practices.
The DoD has worked with private industry to create a 5-level cybersecurity maturity model. Because CMMC standards will evolve to keep pace with new threats, staying on top of updates is vital and recertification is required every three years.
Nearly all DoD contractors will be required to be certified within the next five years. Our cybersecurity assessors help clients determine the Maturity Level certification they will need.
Our one-stop independent Readiness Review and Report includes the independent assessment and an actionable report. Costs for ML-1 are low, to keep the service accessible for small businesses. Clients may be eligible for additional discounts based on our pre-review consultation, post-remediation reviews, or additional Maturity Levels. DTS provides policy writing services, using our best-practice templates, for an additional fee.
Cybersecurity isn’t simply about rule-following. Done right, it can be a catalyst for opportunity and business growth.
