CMMC Certification Prep

New cybersecurity standards from the U.S. Department of Defense will soon be required for all companies doing business with the DoD as a prime contractor, subcontractor, or supplier.


Is Your Company CMMC Ready?

Get ahead of the DoD compliance curve.

The DoD is in the process of rolling out the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). Although requirements for safeguarding Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) already exist under DFARS 252.204-7012, to win new contracts, contractors will no longer be able to attest to their own compliance and will be subject to third-party assessment and certification. CMMC will be required on all new DoD contracts, with a phased roll-out that is already in motion.

Steel Root helps organizations understand and implement the cybersecurity requirements of the five CMMC certification levels. As a national leader in cybersecurity compliance for the defense industrial base, our team has a deep understanding of the CMMC cybersecurity practices and how to apply them effectively and ready for assessment.
