The U.S. loses an estimated $60B annually to cyber-attacks. The government contracting community accounts for much of this loss. As a result, our economic health and national security are threatened.
Are you doing business with the Department of Defense (DoD)? Then it’s time to prepare for the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework. The CMMC framework is based primarily on NIST 800-171 and designed to secure our nation’s Defense Industrial Base (DIB). While most companies will be able to self-assess their compliance, many will need a third-party assessment. Therefore, every company that either directly or indirectly does business with the DoD will need to comply with CMMC.
The DoD has announced the details of CMMC 2.0. This revision scaled back the program from the previous version to lower costs and accelerate compliance. While there are important changes, most of the technical requirements remain in place.
CMMC 2.0 reduces the number of levels from five to three. Level 1 remains unchanged and Level 2 aligns to the original Level 3. However, Level 5 remains unchanged at this point, although the DoD is delaying most of the work on that level.Book MY Cybersecurity review
The CMMC 2.0 framework includes three levels of security requirements. If you store, process, or transit Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) you’re required to achieve at least Level 2 compliance.
Level 2 compliance aligns to NIST 800-171. As a result, contractors working to meet this standard must deploy the appropriate technologies to support requirements such as multi-factor authorization, device management, security monitoring, and more.
Microsoft 365 GCC High is the version of Microsoft 365 that’s designed specifically for the DIB. Additionally, it’s built on a foundation of security, privacy, and compliance in the Azure Government Cloud. With Microsoft 365 GCC High, contractors can meet the following requirements:
For companies that don’t have data sovereignty requirements, Microsoft 365 GCC may be the right option to support your compliance and security requirements.Learn more about Microsoft 365 GCC High and how C3 Integrated Solutions is uniquely poised to help your company take advantage of this powerful tool.
C3 has developed a methodical approach to secure your environment and position it for CMMC 2.0 compliance. We build upon the Microsoft Cloud (either GCC or GCC High) as well as select complementary services. As a result, we deliver the technologies necessary to meet the practices required by CMMC 2.0. This approach is modular and allows clients to pick the services they need to complete their compliance journey. Therefore, you can implement services incrementally, at your pace, while maintaining capability and security every step of the way.
Clients need a review of their cybersecurity posture to determine the level of investment required to be compliant. C3 can help you understand how CMMC 2.0 works as well as what solutions you need to meet your targeted level of compliance.Book MY Cybersecurity review

“C3 is awesome! I’m so glad I went with you guys. It can be a bit challenging moving from nothing to the GCC high cloud, but the C3 Team make it understandable and painless. That’s also one of the big reasons I choose to add the DEFEND service – I have zero worries that C3 will implement it correctly and I will understand how to manage it.”
