From manufacturers to defense technologies, our team's background ranges from working with elite U.S. military units and NASA, to Fortune 50 and mid-market companies.

United States defense contractors are required to align with Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC/CMMC 2.0) requirements in order to win and maintain DoD contracts. CMMC has significant overlap with the NIST SP 800-171 framework and others, requiring many standard security framework practices to be in place. Each contractor will have to meet a specific CMMC level based on the criticality of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) as defined by the DoD. The higher the level, the stricter guidelines the company needs to follow.
