As the cybersecurity landscape continues to evolve, government agencies like the Department of Defense (DoD) are implementing stricter compliance standards to safeguard sensitive information. The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework is a prime example of this heightened focus on cybersecurity, requiring organizations that handle Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) to meet specific security requirements.
Since many government contractors rely on Managed Service Providers (MSPs) for IT support, MSPs now face the decision of whether or not to pursue CMMC certification. All evidence (see the CMMC 2.0 Proposed Rule) points to MSPs and MSSPs (lumped under the External Service Provider (ESP) moniker) needing to achieve the same or better CMMC Level as the Organization Seeking Assessment (OSA) / Organization Seeking Certification (OSC) they support.
While the decision may seem daunting, the benefits of achieving CMMC compliance can be significant, including expanded business opportunities, enhanced customer trust, improved cyber posture, and a stronger competitive advantage.
Understanding the CMMC requirements and implementing the necessary controls can be a complex process. This is where Bound Planet steps in.
