Responsibilities as The Security Control Assessor (SCA) included assessing the management, operational, assurance, and technical security and privacy controls implemented on an information system (s) by utilizing Security Testing and Evaluation (ST&E) methods. Managed responsibilities unified cybersecurity standards for future DoD acquisitions. Designed our organizational CMMC Model v1.0 MS Excel Spreadsheets encompassing 17 capability domains; 5 processes across five levels to measure process maturity and 171 practices across five levels to measure technical capabilities Comfortable with 48 CFR 52.204-21, NIST SP 800-171r1, and Draft SP 800-171B.

  • Successfully championed the design of our Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification CMMC Model v1.0, practices and processes introducing CMMC Level 1, 17 practices, Level 2, 55 practices, Level 3, 58 practices, Level 4, 26 practices and Level 5, 15 practices encompassing NIST-800- 171 CUI implementation.
  • Reviewed the XACTA automated database information, including the SSP, SCTM, Project’s self-test results, additional artifacts, NIST 800-53A Potential Assessment Methods & Objectives, and Certification and Accreditation Department (CAD) developed Test Examples to perform the assessments as prescribed by the CAD.
  • Ensured assessments combine project personnel interviews, automated security tools, and manual-human review/ inspection of control implementations documented within the SCTM. The output of the assessment is the Security Assessment Report (SAR) and Security Finding(s) or Risk Elements(s), which identifies vulnerabilities found by the SCA and quantifies the risk of operating the system within the Agency. The SAR is sent to the ISO who must address all identified vulnerabilities.
  • Managed the notifications if vulnerabilities are not immediately fixed; a mitigation statement of risk acceptance request is provided in the projects Plan of Actions and Milestones (POAM). After this step, the SCA updates the SAR and POAM to address all resolved vulnerabilities and promotes the project to Senior Officials to determine Authorization.
  • Successfully assessed over 110 IC assessments ensuring ATO status and applicable FISMA acceptance within Milestone deadline(s).
  • Responsibilities including the remediation of over 75 POAM validations of highly visible Federal Systems impacting National Security at Congressional
