RMF & CMMC Compliance is complicated

Maintaining compliance for the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) and Risk Management Framework (RMF) is time-intensive and requires a deep understanding of DoD specific requirements and the impact they have on your business. These cybersecurity requirements have the potential to touch all aspects of your organization, and a misunderstood or missed compliance requirement can cost you revenue.

DoD cybersecurity requirements are very demanding of time, money, and expertise. The continual evolution of cybersecurity threats, combined with the federal government’s aggressive mandates to increase the protection of our nation’s assets, has placed a heavy burden on the private sector and defense contractors to secure Controlled Defense Information (CDI) data.

Gaining an Authority to Operate (ATO), your Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) attestation or mandated CMMC maturity level is a journey and not a destination. There will be Plan of Action and Milestone (POA&M) controls to address, continuous monitoring requirements, company policies to update and maintain, and inevitably the next ATO to achieve.

Obtaining an ATO or becoming CUI compliant typically used to be an effort that would be designated to someone as an added role within your organization. With RMF and the submittal data entry process of eMASS, it has become too much work with too many complexities to not invest in dedicated and trained expertise.

The Solution for ongoing CMMC & RMF compliance

Our solutions are simple:  We streamline the two compliance frameworks for your organization, which saves everyone time and money.  Our Department of Defense’s cybersecurity trained team can take the hard part of CMMC and RMF compliance burden off your organizations’ shoulders and help carry the weight of compliance for you. Our team holds many expert-level certifications and has several decades of combined experience working with or in the DoD.

We understand what policies are required, the best practices for writing to the requirements, what should be in a POA&M, and what must be addressed when you submit for an ATO. We provide templates, eMASS portal updates, continuous monitoring tools, all while supporting your organization through each and every phase of the process.

Our team and tools support your ATO process, the maintenance and improvement of your compliance while under an ATO, and keep you prepared and ahead of schedule to receive your next ATO.

There are a few ways your organization can approach this problem. You could hire additional team members, and add additional overhead and complication to your organization. Or bring in a compliance company every year for a rush project to try to get up to speed for our ATO and CUI needs.
