Your Challenge

Achieving CMMC compliance is no easy feat. CMMC requirements are stricter than most, and focus heavily on documentation. This certification is also still relatively new, so it’s constantly undergoing changes.

What is CMMC?

Created by the Department of Defense (DoD), the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a framework that consists of 3 different levels – Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3. Its purpose is to help protect the defense industrial base from cybersecurity threats.

If you’re planning to sell to the DoD (or a different part of the US federal government), you must become compliant with this new framework to prove that you are meeting the government’s data security requirements.

How We Solved Your Challenge

CMMC Level 1 (L1) is the most commonly requested set of requirements. It applies to a good majority of companies, and requires only a self- assessment.

We’re excited to announce that you can now begin your journey of becoming CMMC Level 1 compliant via TrustOps.

With this release, you’re able to:

  • View a Gap Analysis between your compliance program and CMMC L1.
  • Use Compliance Automation to help you achieve CMMC Level 1. This feature turns on CMMC L1 as an audit objective in your TrustOps program. Once you upgrade to CMMC, TrustCloud automatically adds all the controls you need to achieve CMMC L1, and allows you to track your progress via the Audit Dashboard.

Value to You

Your CMMC L1 compliance must be assessed every three years, so it’s important to make sure the process is as efficient, accurate, and smooth as possible. By utilizing this new feature, you will no longer have to worry about keeping track of your documents, or reading up on the latest CMMC updates and making sure you’re up to speed.

Pursuing this certification can be a challenge, but TrustCloud simplifies the process to help you close your deals faster. And when both you and your customers know that their data is safe, the effort you put into CMMC feels worthwhile.
