The introduction of the CMMC model addresses a deep gap that affects more than the DoD. Whether you represent a federal, state or local agency, you may be interested in adopting the CMMC standard to exploit the groundbreaking work and standardization introduced. Other nations wishing to adopt an accepted standard for cybersecurity may be able to use the CMMC, and our accreditation body, as well.
While our mission will begin with fulfilling the U.S. Department of Defense's needs we anticipate the ability to help with your mission. Stay tuned to this space as we will provide more information as it becomes available.
The theft of intellectual property and sensitive information undermines our nation's defense posture and economy. Global costs last year are estimated at $600 billion, with an average cost per American of $4,000.
It is time for action.
Suppliers to the U.S. Department of Defense will need to be certified against CMMC standards regardless of their location. For FVEY or other alliance partners, the Accreditation Body will work to build strategic relationships with local accreditation bodies or certify allied foreign nationals to assess local companies.
International certification paths, methods, and assessment models are not yet developed. Information will be posted here as it becomes available.
