CyberSheath Services International has launched its Managed Services for the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) to ensure compliance with the new cybersecurity standards for commercial contractors for the federal government. The company will leverage  Microsoft-focused technology stack to support CMMC policy changes and new implementation requirements.

The company will integrate Azure Government Blueprints, Microsoft 365 Government (GCC High) and the Department of Defense (DoD)-approved Microsoft security portfolio within CyberSheath’s Managed Services.

“The Microsoft technology behind CyberSheath’s managed services is designed to meet the unique and evolving requirements of the U.S. Department of Defense. With its technology stack aligned with its mission, CyberSheath is better able to ensure its clients’ security and compliance,” said Mandana Javaheri, global director, Security Partner Development at Microsoft.

Cybersheath’s managed services include a Shared Security Compliance Framework to guarantee compliance for both DFARS Clause 252.204-7012, NIST SP 800-171 and CMMC requirements. Integrating Cybersheath Assess, Implement, Manage (AIM) methodology, the company will  provide standards for existing regulatory requirements and the proper CMMC level.

CyberSheath will offer five CMMC levels of assured compliance, ranging from premise-based technology companies to cloud-driven FedRAMP High environments. CyberSheath will integrate any needed changes and revise architectures to maintain desired levels of CMMC compliance.

The company will also leverage a Shared Responsibility Model, a concept uniquely adapted from cloud providers and applied to CMMC Managed Services, to dictate the security obligations of a CMMC compliance environment and its users.

The framework will ensure accountability and define how security measures should be applied, with a special focus on CUI and other sensitive government data to provide a self-reinforcing model that will reduce the burden on government contractors and ensure compliance.

“When I launched CyberSheath nearly a decade ago, it was to solve this very problem for Defense Industrial Base companies, and CMMC is simply the next evolution in what has been a nearly thirteen-year journey with the DoD,” said Eric Noonan, founder and CEO of CyberSheath Services International.

Join Potomac Officers Club for its Fall 2020 CMMC Forum on Oct. 7th, 2020 to learn about the requirements and priorities of implementing the certification, including scoping of CMMC assessments, supply chain impacts and C3PAOs, as RFPs quickly approach.

Katherine Arrington, chief information security officer (CISO) for the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition (OUSDA) for the Department of Defense (DoD) and 2020 Wash100 Award recipient, will be featured as the keynote speaker.
