maintain your ability to bid with cmmc

The compliance landscape is changing. Soon, every organization that does business with the Department of Defense will be required to undergo a Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) by an authorized auditor before bidding on a contract or subcontracting to a prime. By acting now, you’re taking the first step toward maintaining your ability to bid.

Get Ahead of the Problem

CMMC will require audits and certification as a “pre-qualification” requirement prior to contract award. Understanding how auditors interpret requirements is the challenge that most organizations aren’t aware of – and there are plenty of trojan horses in the market that take advantage. Don’t be fooled by free, simple self assessment tools – they are not sufficient to achieve CMMC certification.

Luckily, our team at  CORTAC Group is apart of the CMMC AB Standards Workgroup, provisional CMMC auditors, and Registered Practitioners. And we’re ready to help you on this journey.
