Darkblade Systems Stands up Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Services Assessment Team

January 2021

Graphic with word compliance on itDarkblade Systems has created a Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Assessment teaming capability.

In 2020, the Department of Defense released the initial version of the CMMC standard, with the requirement that all companies conducting business with the US Government must be CMMC certified at the appropriate level. Certifications will begin for new and existing defense contractors in 2021.

The CMMC combines cybersecurity standards and best practices, then maps these controls and processes across several maturity levels that range from basic to advanced cyber hygiene. Each CMMC level, when implemented, will reduce risk against a specific set of cyber threats using associated controls and processes.

The Darkblade Systems team includes one of the first CMMC Accreditation Board (CMMC-AB) Provisional Assessors on staff, as well as Registered Practitioners and has applied to be both a CMMC Third-Party Assessor Organization (C3PAO) and a Registered Practitioner Organization (RPO).

Compliance and Assessment logosBeginning in first quarter CY2021, Darkblade Systems will begin providing consulting services for NIST and CMMC compliance readiness and pre-assessment services for CMMC Maturity Levels 1 through 3. Once the Defense Industrial Base Cybersecurity Assessment Center (DIBCAC) reviews Darkblade Systems for its C3PAO certification, our team will begin conducting official assessments in support of the Cyber Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program.
