Recent government and commercial data breaches highlight the need for more stringent security measures to safeguard sensitive information.
MicroTech is a Candidate Certified Third-Party Assessor Organization (Candidate C3PAO) with Registered Provider Organization (RPO) accreditation by the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Accreditation Body (CMMC AB) with multiple certified Registered Practitioners. This designation proves our commitment to the CMMC program and promotes the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DoD) mission to secure the defense supply chain.
RPOs like MicroTech are authorized by the CMMC AB to provide consulting services to government contractors and other companies in preparation for their CMMC assessments. The DoD created the CMMC program to facilitate protection of critical data, specifically controlled unclassified information (CUI) and federal contract information (FCI), within the DoD’s multi-tiered supply chain of more than 300,000 companies. CMMC was created for small and mid-sized suppliers because they are more exposed to cyber threats in the supply chain. Small and mid-sized contractors are progressively more targeted by nation-state attackers but have limited in-house resources and cybersecurity proficiency to properly secure their systems and safeguard sensitive customer data.
MicroTech’s background in providing assessment and advisory services for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program and other compliance frameworks positions the company to support the CMMC program. MicroTech’s CMMC practice bolsters its cybersecurity compliance and assessment services, services MicroTech has been providing since its founding in 2004.
MicroTech’s CMMC consulting services include boundary scoping, gap assessments, remediation support, security documentation, and readiness assessments. As a Candidate C3PAO and RPO, MicroTech will continue to assist federal contractors in effectively maneuvering the DoD’s new cybersecurity certification process. We will perform CMMC assessments in four phases: planning, assessment, report findings, and remediation. We expect to complete those assessments in four to six weeks depending on the complexity of the evaluation.
