Prepare for your Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Leveraging Alyne

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) combines several best practices defined in many leading security frameworks, including NIST 800-171, ISO 270001 and others. As the regulation rolls out, contractors will soon be expected to meet minimum criteria in order to be awarded contracts. Learn how to prepare for a high level certification leveraging Alyne.

The increased intelligence of cyber attacks means that cybersecurity is no longer only the responsibility of the IT department, but a shared responsibility within the organisation. As we leverage on the advantages that digital technology brings us, it is critical that controls, processes and recovery plans are in place to ensure a safe virtual work environment.

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a cybersecurity standard released on 31 January 2020 by the Department of Defense to ensure that organisations in the Defense Industrial Base supply chain are undertaking appropriate cybersecurity measures to maintain confidentiality and security of sensitive defense information.

As the regulation rolls out, contractors will soon be expected to meet the specific level maturity required in order to be awarded contracts. However, without the assistance of experts, the process of gaining clarity on the cyber maturity of the organisation and having a successful CMMC audit may not seem as straightforward.

 

Common questions include:

  • "How can I prepare for the CMMC Audit before the regulation rolls out?"
  • “What processes and practices should I focus on for each risk area?”
  • “How do I keep track of the implementation status of the CMMC frameworks measures?”

To guide your organisation towards a successful CMMC audit, the Alyne team have released a CMMC whitepaper detailing the processes and practices for each level, preparation tips, annd how you can attain a CMMC level 3 leveraging Alyne's built in capabilities.
