Any contractor looking to work with the US Defense Department must meet the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification requirements. Obtaining the certification can be a challenging and time-consuming process.
This is where GRS Technology Solutions comes in. As a CMMC Registered Provider Organization (RPO), we manage Registered Practitioners (RP), who are authorized to advise organizations in obtaining their CMMC.
While CMMC RPOs only hold an advisory role without the ability to certify an organization, the majority of organizations attempting to get certified find the guidance invaluable.
A CMMC RPO employs people who have been training in the basic methodology required by the CMMC. As a result, RPs can offer non-certified consulting services and help organizations more effectively prepare for a CMMC assessment. RPOs are also bound by a strict Professional Code of Conduct.
GRS Technology can bring your organization up to speed with all the basic constructs of the CMMC Standard. Furthermore, our non-certified consulting services will help you meet the certification requirements, including assisting with documenting all practices, providing object evidence, and adopting the processes necessary to achieve CMMC Level 2.
1. CMMC Assessment
We first conduct an in-depth evaluation of your existing network and determine how well it aligns with the necessary cybersecurity controls, including those required by NIST SP 800-171.
This assessment allows us to identify any compliance issues that need to be addressed and develop strategies to deal with these gaps.
2. SSP & PO&AM
Subsequently, we provide you with documented evidence through a System Security Plan (SSP), a Plan of Action, and Milestones (PO&AM). You can present this evidence to the US Department of Defense or your Prime as proof that you are undertaking all the necessary steps to achieve full compliance.
In this final stage, we address the issues highlighted in the PO&AM. The solution can be as simple as implementing a multi-factor authentication system or as complicated as overhauling a legacy infrastructure, depending on the state of your network.
As GRS Technology has helped numerous organizations prepare for CMMC, we have fine-tuned various solutions designed to help our clients prepare faster and more cost-efficiently to obtain their CMMC.
