Getting CMMC Certified in Irvine, California (CA)
In our company, we always receive clients and people overall that ask about all the ISOs they have to implement. And there always seems to be a misunderstanding since many of them think they have to implement every standard that has been created and released. Standards are focused on specific areas, industries, and companies.
Therefore, you don’t have to implement all of them even when it seems like a benefit for your company. Of course, there is one thing you need to keep in mind: some are mandatory while others are merely optional. Certain ISOs have to be implemented and the company must get certified in it to show it meets the requirements and all the regulations established in the document. This is the case with CMMC.
This ISO stands for Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification, and it is the most recent standard in the cybersecurity management system. However, the difference between this and other ISOs focused on similar aspects and areas is that this one only needs to be implemented for defense contractors. People or companies that work around or with the Department of Defense in the country must implement it to guarantee the protection and security of unclassified and classified information.
When it is not implemented, the company won’t be able to continue having contracts with the DoD or work around it. Now, the standard is unique in its system and only shares it with another that aims for the improvement of the areas in any company. But continuing with it, CMMC has 5 levels in total that consist of the security hygiene of the company.
Each level focuses on specific measures and parameters to guarantee the protection of the information and data that is saved and can be compromised. Not all defense contractors have to reach every level in the standard. Instead, they can get certified in the one they have met all the requirements or need.
Level 1 is very simple since it aims for setting passwords and securing the devices with the information and data available. But from level 2 and forward, the measures and parameters tend to get more difficult and stricter, reaching the point where encryptions and several programs are required. It sounds like a lot of work, and it actually is.
