Are you ready for CMMC? Don’t go at it alone.

“The only way to prove adoption is to provide evidence that the practices are consistently done the say way over a period of time.”

Regardless of your position in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB), Defense Supply Chain (DSC), or are looking to market your firm as having good cyber hygiene, you need someone who is knowledgeable about what it takes to meet cybersecurity maturity. Wendy Epley has been designated by the CMMC-Accreditation Body (AB) as a Registered Practitioner (RP) and can help guide you to your desired cybersecurity maturity based on the requirements set forth by the CMMC and National Institutes of Standard and Technology (NIST). One of the critical aspects of achieving basic cyber hygiene (CMMC Level 1) is proving adoption of your practices. The only way to prove adoption is to provide evidence that the practices are consistently done the same way over a period of time. In CMMC Level 2, not only do you need to have the adoption of your practices but your practices must be significantly documented and matured. This takes time as well. So, regardless of the level in the CMMC maturity model you want to achieve – you are going to need every minute between now and October 1, 2025 to get to your desired level. Keep in mind that if you self-attest to the federal government that you meet basic cybersecurity maturity but you really do not – you are subjecting yourself and your organization to a False Claims Act claim.

There is no need to make guesses with cybersecurity maturity or CMMC. Let Wendy Epley and Epley Consulting LLC help you develop the practices and processes for CMMC that will not only help protect your client’s information, but yours as well.
