What exactly is CMMC?
CMMC is the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification that was created by the Department of Defense (DoD). Its purpose is to make sure third-party companies are using security standards. These standards ensure that contractors are keeping federal contract information and controlled unclassified information safe inside their networks.
Why is CMMC certification important?
The CMMC is all about security hygiene. The levels range from basic to advanced. The more appropriate security measures you implement, the more mature your security model is and the more secure the data is. While the DoD cannot make you implement a mature security model, they can stop doing business with you if you don’t meet the standards. Fortunately, we can help you, so you don't have to worry about missing the criteria.
Becoming CMMC certified
As with anything in life, you can’t just fumble your way through CMMC certification. There are a lot of things to consider, such as your current security model, what it will take to get you where you need to be, the ability to assign resources to make changes and so forth. In a nutshell, it'll take time and money away from your already stretched budget.
If your company relies on DoD contracts, then you already know that you must become certified. Understanding what to look for, preparing for what an auditor may find and having the resources you need to move along are all challenges. But one of the things at the front of your mind is likely the cost. Entech can help you address all of these concerns.)
The cost to become certified can be broken down into three major categories:
- Preparation costs: The cost is not fixed and will be different for everyone, but you can count on the cost rising the higher you go in the certification tier.
- Costs to make changes: Again, this will depend on how mature your security model already is, but if you're lacking in some of the basics, the cost will be more to bring in more technology.
- Audit costs: Auditing costs are also not fixed, but they can be tens of thousands of dollars.
The option to do the work yourself and save money is tempting, but it's also a big risk. Imagine spending months of hard work and some of your tightly allocated budget only to find out that you didn't pass the test. Paying a third party to help may cost more upfront, but you will save in the end. Get it right the first time by partnering with Entech.
