Defense Industrial Base

Ensuring Eligibility Under CMMC

In the next five years, over 300,000 defense contractors in the United States will be required to achieve CMMC certification to remain eligible for contract award. How are you achieving this certification? What steps are you taking now to prepare?

For organizations in the Defense Industrial Base Sector, we are prepared to assist with gap analysis as a Registered Provider Organization, focusing on cyber security compliance reviews.

Cyber Security Maturity is not a Checkbox, it’s a Culture

With the increase in attacks from advanced persistent threats across the globe, your clients are looking for proof of your own robust cyber security posture. Gone are the days of siloed outbreaks across single business units. The interconnectivity throughout the modern supply chain demands comprehensive solutions, supported by informed analysis.

Who is the Weakest Link in Your Supply Chain?

This is the question on the minds of every executive, starting with major prime contractors. Are you positioned to market yourself as the most secure and reliable source for their needs?

Defense Industrial Sector organizations will be required to certify their systems every three years or after major network revisions (e.g., corporate merger, spin off, new building). We work with our clients to serve as their project managers, designing the roadmap to compliance.

Managing Your Risk and Liability

Limit your IT liabilities by partnering with subject matter experts focused on cyber security. Large scale data loss, ransomware encryption, or other long-term outages are a persistent risk and can result in not only losses due to interruption of production, but “door closing” financial losses to the firm overall.

Our “Secret Shopper” approach to assessing your weaknesses can help you identify which of your employees may be placing you at significant risk with their IT related habits, giving you an opportunity for education before disaster strikes.

We work to manage this acquired “IT Debt” in steps, serving as your project managers every step of the way, from acquisition and deployment to training and aftercare. We make the process budget-able for you, and manageable for us, even if an IT budget didn’t exist before.
