Huntsville, AL, November 07, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Stealth-ISS Group® Inc. (Stealth Group) is helping the Department of Defense’s Prime and Sub-Contractors save money and prepare for the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) by offering a Free Readiness Check.
In order to protect the nation’s sensitive data, the Department of Defense (DoD) issued a new cybersecurity certification that is mandatory for both prime and sub-contractors. Cybersecurity requirements will no longer be voluntary, placing defense contractors’ cybersecurity posture under an intense microscope. Katie Arrington, the Pentagon's Acquisition Policy Office’s Chief Information Security Office, reportedly told contractors, "This is a change of culture. It's going to take time, it's going to be painful, and it's going to cost money."
Knowing the extensive nature of CMMC, Stealth Group is devoted to helping defense contractors discover what actions are needed to be prepared for a CMMC audit. The free readiness check will help align their security with DFARS/NIST 800-171 requirements. Additionally, they will provide a free Data Risk scan to help contractors gain visibility into knowing what sensitive data is exposed to threats. Any additional services remediation services will be provided at a 10% off.
“CMMC is a clear sign of how the US DoD is getting serious about how their supply chain exposes them to cybersecurity risks,” explains Stealth Group’s Sales Director, Chris Langford. “With estimates over $8B in losses to foreign threats annually, the defense industrial base must do their part to protect our nation's warfighters. Stealth Group is dedicated to helping organizations achieve their required CMMC level in order to better protect national security and their organizations' people, data and reputation.”
Stealth Group prides itself on delivering innovative cyber security solutions to defense contractors, with a focus on delivering processes, policy and technology maximization and optimization that is aligned to existing client business operations. With this approach, Stealth Group’s clients have the assurance of minimizing their risk without interruption to existing operational business systems, see measurable improvements in their security posture and risk profile, as well as rapid adherence to new security standards and laws, such as CMMC.
Although CMMC is still in draft form, DoD contractors need to start preparing now. Stealth Group will only be offering a Free Readiness Check until January 2020.
