Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification [CMMC]

Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a requirement for all organizations within the supply chain to the United States Department of Defense (DoD), whether a prime contractor, sub-contractor, or sub-tier supplier. CMMC ensures that an organization has achieved the minimum threshold of cybersecurity necessary to be entrusted with the types of information they receive or handle.

As a Registered Provider Organization (RPO) providing advisory services to organizations preparing for CMMC and among the first to be named a CMMC Third Party Assessment Organization (C3PAO), Brick House offers a full suite of services to help organizations prepare for and achieve their required CMMC maturity level.

Although CMMC may seem daunting at first, learning the steps and working with a trusted partner can help you navigate this process more smoothly.

A strong first step is becoming knowledgeable of not only the CMMC framework, but also where and how it applies to you, all while being mindful of your unique business requirements, processes, network environment, and infrastructure. To bring all of this together in preparation for a successful CMMC assessment, you are best served by an advisor with a strong track record of completed assignments.

As a CMMC Registered Provider Organization (RPO), Brick House's proven approach and methodologies stem from decades of cybersecurity and compliance experience plus the knowledge gained across hundreds of DIB and Federal client projects.

Brick House’s CMMC Advisory Services support DIB organizations through the journey of becoming CMMC Certification ready. From determining where CMMC requirements apply to your organization to identifying the gaps that need to be addressed, to creating remediation plans, to supporting and performing remediation services, Brick House can help you become prepared to complete a CMMC Assessment.

While CMMC certification occurs at a point in time, maintaining and improving cyber maturity is a continuous process. As threats to the DIB evolve to become more sophisticated, so does the broader threat landscape. At the same time, your network, business applications, and the infrastructure that supports them constantly changes.

To remain secure, organizations must review their security posture on an ongoing basis to identify and remediate emerging gaps. Cybersecurity experts from Brick House can help ensure continuous maturity and compliance by providing ongoing oversight, guidance, and support for a company’s security operation.
