CMMC Certification Preparation

RSI consults, architects, deploys and supports complete compliance and cybersecurity solutions. RSI’s NIST experts will prepare contractors for the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) which combines various cybersecurity standards and best practices and map these controls and processes across 5 maturity levels that range from basic cyber hygiene to advanced. Once the gap assessment for any of the 5 levels is complete, contractors are then ready to engage with an accredited CMMC Third Party Assessment Organizations (C3PAOs) to conduct the certification assessments and issue CMMC certificates to Defense Industrial Base (DIB) companies at the appropriate level.
