Case Studies

Here's how we've helped businesses overcome challenges and achieve their goals.

Unleashing cybersecurity success: How InterSec helps a manufacturing company meet CMMC requirements with ease

A Virginia-based manufacturing company was facing challenges in meeting the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Level 2 requirements set forth by the Department of Defense. The company had limited IT resources and was hesitant about using cloud services.
The company was struggling to meet the CMMC requirements due to its limited IT resources, lack of dedicated IT staff, and use of outdated technology. Additionally, the company was cautious about using cloud services to store sensitive information.
InterSec was referred to the company to help them achieve CMMC compliance. InterSec engaged the company's executive management, educated the company's staff, and defined roles and responsibilities for information security. InterSec then utilized its NIST 800-171/CMMC field-tested readiness methodology to ensure a successful CMMC compliance milestone.

InterSec is able to quickly remediate and improve the company's security posture, resulting in an SPRS score of 110. The client subsequently requested our Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) services to maintain CMMC compliance.
InterSec's well-defined methodology, streamlined project execution, and expertise made the project a success, helping the company achieve the CMMC requirements and secure its systems. The company can now continue serving the defense industry while minimizing potential security risks.

Accelerating CMMC compliance: A Virginia-based acquisition support contractor's success story with InterSec

A Virginia-based Acquisition Support contractor with 200+ employees was facing challenges in meeting the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Level 2 requirements set forth by the Department of Defense. With two office locations and a recent acquisition of a small manufacturing company, the contractor needed to comply with a defense contract and improve their SPRS score to 110.
The contractor faced a complex task of integrating the acquired company employees into its existing systems, and employees were not on the parent company's Active Directory which made it harder to enforce CMMC policies and procedures.
InterSec came to the rescue with its innovative approach to CMMC compliance, leveraging its CMMC accelerators and field-tested NIST 800-171/CMMC methodology to assess the current state and develop a remediation plan. The plan was executed by creating policies, procedures, supplement documents, and providing technical remediation services.
InterSec brought a rigorous CMMI Services Level 3 mature service delivery process and ISO 9001 quality management to CMMC services, conducted an assessment, developed a remediation plan, implemented policies/procedures, provided technical remediation services, integrated the acquired company, prepared documentation, and executed the project using their NIST 800-171/CMMC field-tested readiness methodology, resulting in a successful outcome for the customer.
The contractor's SPRS score improved to 110, the acquisition was seamlessly integrated into the parent company's systems, and all required documentation was uploaded into the SPRS system ahead of the deadline, meeting the customer's CMMC compliance requirements.
InterSec's innovative approach and experienced team helped the contractor achieve CMMC compliance and secure their systems, ensuring their ability to serve the defense industry while minimizing security risks. The well-defined methodology and field-tested approach to execution made the project a resounding success.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some questions frequently asked by DIB Contractors about CMMC Compliance

Does CMMC apply to me?

If you are a DoD supplier and have FCI (Federal Contract Information) or CUI (Controlled Unclassified Information) in your contracts, you will be required to become CMMC Compliant.

What CMMC level do I need?

The level necessary depends on whether the company is dealing with CUI or FCI. FCI would require the company to complete level 1, and dealing with CUI would require the company to have achieved level 2.

When will CMMC requirements start appearing in solicitations?

It is predicted that in the Department of Defense's timeline, CMMC requirements could appear in solicitations in May this year. Currently, CMMC compliance is a soft requirement, so some solicitations may allow you to bid even if you don't have your SPRS score reported. Still, once the rule-making is completed, CMMC compliance will become mandatory to bid or accept contract awards.

How long does it take to get CMMC certified?

The Department of Defense estimates it takes 9 to 24 months to become CMMC-certified. The first level may take 1 to 3 months, the second level may take 6 to 18 months, and the third level would take 9 to 24 months.

What if I don't comply with CMMC requirements?

If you don't comply with CMMC, you will lose out on DoD business. Besides that, if you falsely claim to be CMMC Compliant while you are not, you may have to pay heavy penalties under FCA (False Claim Act.)

How much does CMMC Compliance cost?

The CMMC assessment costs will depend upon several factors, including which CMMC level your company is trying to achieve and the complexity of the DIB company's unclassified network for the certification boundary. A fair estimate can range between USD 250 and USD 7500 per seat for CMMC Level 2 and Level 3.
