CMMC Mission Statement
The CMMC is intended to serve as a verification mechanism to ensure appropriate levels of cybersecurity practices and processes are in place to ensure basic cyber hygiene as well as protect controlled unclassified information (CUI) that resides on the Department’s industry partners’ networks.
- To achieve CMMC certification, DIB partners and contractors must assess the as-is and to-be states of their cybersecurity environment to gauge their current level of information security, identify and track risks more effectively, and prioritize information security and system procurement needs.
- Cotton performs pre-assessments to assist our clients in identifying corrective actions related to CMMC and implementing the required cybersecurity controls.
Sikich is now a certified Third Party Assessor Organization (C3PAO) candidate. We are following the CMMC Accreditation Body processes to become an authorized C3PAO to be able to perform assessments for organizations seeking certification (OSC). We are currently ready and able to assist DIB partners and contractors with their CMMC readiness efforts.
