Whether you’re a Formula 1 expert or Learner driver on the Information Security Certification Super Highway (!), you should be aware of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification – CMMC. If you are a Federal Prime or Sub-contractor, and, more to the point, if you are a DIB (Defense Industrial Base) Contractor, you might be lost on that Highway right now! Never fear! No need to download anymore “free guides to CMMC Certification” (like, errr. this one!)

Here is your map to CMMC Certification!

Step 1: Take The Shortcut

For you Netflix addicts (who isn’t after this year?), you can shortcut this article and watch our CEO, Lily Yeoh’s latest TV interview here


OR….  (HINT: There is no map needed)  just contact CyberOne and we will automate the process for you…

Who’s (Whose?) on CMMC First?

Let’s begin with the landscape. Who requires and who needs CMMC Certification? How do we get it? How do we maintain it? How do we build a budget for it? What is the CMMC required NIST 800-171 Control Self Assessment and SSP for SPRS?

Who’s asking? Not only DoD Contracts…

It started with the DoD, but, like a virus (!), it quickly grew. Earlier in 2020, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is already including CMMC in its contract processGSA is the latest to introduce CMMC language into its contract process. GSA notes it reserves the right to require CMMC in its contracts, based upon the contract and security needs.  Read more about GSA and CMMC here

Who responds? Prime and Subcontractors, and so on…

DIB’s and all subcontractors are required to be CMMC certified. This also includes the completion of the NIST 800-171 Self Assessment and a Control Mapped SSP. These must be submitted (with score) and displayed in the SPRS (Supplier Performance Risk System). “Quick tip”: It’s pronounced “Spurs” in the industry!  The more you know…

NIST 800-171 Control Self Assessment

Required as a starting point for all Primes and Subcontractors. Start with our fully automated CMMC required NIST 800-171 Control Self Assessment, risk score, and controls mapped to your SSP, and report-ready for submission to the SPRS. CyberOne’s platform. Add your subcontractors for assessment, starting at only $350 per assessment. Your assessment is mapped to CMMC controls in CyberOne so you can begin CMMC readiness as soon as the assessment has been completed.

CMMC Certification and More

The key to successful compliance, and the challenge, for most enterprises, is the maintenance and effective, ongoing, implementation of controls, often across multiple frameworks. We call this continuous monitoring.

On the CyberOne platform, we will provide you with control implementation guidance, policy templates,  and sample evidence checklists to easily build your CMMC controls. We also provide access to our global obligations library and crosswalks. CyberOne offers more than 100 global regulations and standards, crosswalked to show related requirements in multiple standards. Crosswalks enable you to comply with multiple security and privacy frameworks with minimal control sets. Control Automation with CyberOne

We will guide your internal control and policy development, as well as provide gap analyses and recommendations for strengthening controls and policies. It’s all part of the CyberOne offering. CMMC, SOC2, ISO 27001 are all within comfortable reach on CyberOne’s extensible platform.
