    News:

    RESTON, Va. — Sept. 13, 2022 — Contractors in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) eagerly await the final rulemaking for the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) 2.0 program. While it’s clear that the NIST 800-171 framework is at the program’s core, many questions are left unanswered.

     

    At CMMC CON 2022, contractors can gain the perspective of an assessor through the eyes of Schellman managing principal and chief growth officer Doug Barbin. The virtual conference hosted by CyberSheath, the largest CMMC managed service vendor, returns on Sept. 28 at 9 a.m. EDT. Registration is still open for the free, one-day conference.

     

    Schellman, a proud CMMC CON 2022 sponsor, is one of the first authorized CMMC Third-Party Assessment Organizations (C3PAOs) specializing in NIST 800-171 compliance assessments. Schellman has been a leader for more than 20 years in technology compliance and certification services including FedRAMP assessments, attest examinations (SOC 1, SOC 2, SOC 3), HITRUST certifications, PCI assessments, penetration testing services, ISO 27001, 27701, 9001, 20000, and 22301 certifications, and more. The presentation will allow registered attendees to ask questions as the certification process draws nearer.

     

    “We started CMMC CON to arm contractors with the tools they need to achieve compliance, and having Doug join this year’s conference allows them to gain a perspective we rarely hear about,” said Eric Noonan, CEO at CyberSheath. “With guidance on the assessment process, these contractors can better position themselves to win new business and grow their operations.”

     

    Barbin is a 25-year veteran in cybersecurity who has served as audit partner, product management executive, mortgage CTO/COO, fraud auditor, and computer forensic investigations leader.

     

    “I am excited to be able to participate in CyberSheath’s CMMC CON along with the many other DIB cybersecurity leaders,” Barbin said. “Between the continuously emerging threats and the pending compliance mandates, it is the right time to talk about actionable steps that companies can be taking today.”

     

    Barbin joins a roster of speakers that includes Cyber AB chairman Jeff Dalton, director of CMMC policy Stacy Bostjanick, and keynote speaker Brian Krebs, an independent journalist. Learn more at cmmccon2022.com.

    RESTON, Va. — July 19, 2022 — Cybersecurity has become a top business priority across all sectors, especially for defense contractors required to comply with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program. To provide the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) with an inside look at the industry, CyberSheath announced journalist Brian Krebs will provide the keynote Q&A address at CMMC CON 2022, the nation’s largest CMMC conference.

     

    The virtual, one-day conference kicks off at 9 a.m. EDT on September 28th, 2022. Registration for the event is still available.

     

    Krebs, author of New York Times bestselling book “Spam Nation” and independent investigative reporter, has covered cybersecurity for more than 20 years. He covers cybercrime at the award-winning KrebsOnSecurity.com, was a reporter with the Washington Post from 1995 to 2009, and is best known for breaking stories on high-profile data breaches, including those that hit Target, Home Depot, Michaels, and Ashley Madison. Krebs will speak with CyberSheath CEO Eric Noonan on his view of the cybersecurity landscape, how threat actors strike, and what contractors can do to prevent attacks.

     

    “We had a terrific turnout last year with 1,300 registered attendees at CMMC CON, and contractors are eager to learn more this year, with the second version of CMMC soon to become law,” Noonan said. “Brian’s security expertise will arm our attendees with a valuable perspective as they look to secure their organizations and achieve compliance.”

     

    CMMC CON 2022: Navigating Your Course will offer defense contractors actionable insights through a series of sessions, trivia, and a black belt ceremony for those who complete a six-part cybersecurity compliance ninja training course. Registration for the training course is open through July 22, 2022.

     

    Registered attendees of CMMC CON will receive a complimentary copy of CyberSheath’s upcoming report on the state of the DIB. Session speakers include Robert Beuerlein, Principal Consultant of Aerospace & Defense at Frost & Sullivan; Stacy Bostjanick, Chief of Implementation and Policy at the Office of the DoD Chief Information Officer; Jeff Dalton, Chairman of the CMMC-AB Board of Directors; Maryam Rahmani, Global Black Belt for the Microsoft 365 Government Cloud and CMMC at Microsoft; and Robert Spalding, retired Brigadier General with the U.S. Air Force.

    RESTON, Va. — June 29, 2022 — CyberSheath, the largest Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) managed service vendor for the Defense Industrial Base (DIB), has hired Jeremy Mares as its Vice President of Sales.

     

    Mares will look to expand CyberSheath’s customer base to address a largely under secured segment of the market and help strengthen the federal government’s growing supply chain. CyberSheath research finds that more than two thirds of Department of Defense (DoD) contractors lack appropriate access controls to secure controlled unclassified information.

     

    “We’ve seen tremendous growth over the last year as we have worked to give defense contractors a managed solution for CMMC compliance,” said Eric Noonan, CEO of CyberSheath. “Jeremy’s unique background and experience will be of great benefit to federal contractors wanting a partner to help them achieve CMMC compliance.”

     

    Mares has more than 25 years’ experience in sales, client management, and business development with a strong emphasis on outside sales and channel development. He is uniquely qualified to join the CyberSheath team with 10 years of cybersecurity experience, including CMMC services.

     

    “CyberSheath has long been the leader in CMMC compliance, with its unique and holistic solution to the CMMC compliance problem,” said Mares. “I’m eager to join the team so we can continue on this growth path.”

     

    Mares joins CyberSheath from Redspin, the first organization to successfully pass the CMMC Level 3 certification as a CMMC Third Party Assessor Organization (C3PAO), where he built a new service line encompassing CMMC compliance services and developed channels within the DIB. Previous stops include Sikich, Service Master, Paychex, and Countrywide Mortgage Lending.

     

    On the heels of an investment from Lightview Capital six months ago, which enabled expansion to meet market demand, CyberSheath has expanded growth through new services like Federal Enclave and a partner program. CyberSheath is continuing its educational efforts by bringing back CMMC CON on September 28, 2022.

    RESTON, Va. — June 22, 2022 — Contractors in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) often try to win contracts with the Department of Defense (DoD) without a complete solution for solving Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) compliance requirements.

     

    To help strengthen this matter of national security, CyberSheath, the largest CMMC managed service vendor, is offering a free, six-course training program to inform contractors of what CMMC is, where to start and how to ready your business for compliance.

     

    The curriculum offers resources and tools to achieve compliance and explains the policies and laws behind CMMC.

Ninjas who receive their black belt will be honored on the ninja black belt wall of fame at CMMC CON 2022 on September 28.

     

    “At CMMC CON 2021, contractors who received their black belts were honored on a ninja wall of fame, and with CMMC 2.0 quickly approaching, we’re looking forward to honoring a new class of ninjas,” said Eric Noonan, CEO of CyberSheath. “The security of this data is so important that we’re offering this six-week course at no cost for contractors so they can understand how to achieve compliance.”

     

    Contractors that complete the module will be able to assess compliance and efficiently implement fixes to fill any gaps after learning the following topics:

     

    SessionLevelTopic
    1White BeltHow to identify CUI
    2Purple BeltWhat is scoping and why is it important?

    RESTON, Va. — May 19, 2022 — Security, compliance, and IT roadblocks slow down federal contractors working to achieve compliance with Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). The Defense Industrial Base (DIB) includes more than 220,000 companies, many of which have existing vendor relationships across the security, compliance, and IT CMMC requirements, but no single vendor solves every compliance challenge.

     

    CyberSheath, the largest CMMC managed service provider supporting the DIB, has launched a partner program designed to empower vendors to expand their core capabilities and achieve CMMC compliance faster.

     

    The CyberSheath Partner Program allows managed security service providers (MSSPs) and managed service providers (MSPs) to easily identify opportunities to speed their end customers’ cybersecurity compliance journeys. Every customer has gaps when it comes to CMMC compliance, and they want to fill them efficiently. Our one-of-a-kind partner program allows IT providers to step into cybersecurity and vice versa. Defense contractors want to manage one provider, not three or more, and now you can be that provider.

     

    “CMMC compliance is a matter of national security, and we recognize that anything we can do to speed up a contractor’s journey to full compliance literally makes this country more secure,” said Eric Noonan, CEO of CyberSheath. “Our partner program represents a significant milestone in delivering on our promise to our clients and partners to expand our previously in-house capabilities across a partner ecosystem. We worked extremely closely with our partners on program development to ensure their interests are aligned with the new framework.”

     

    To facilitate the program, CyberSheath created new centralized resources, including a new partner portal and enhanced website to ensure CyberSheath and its partners are in lockstep to quickly and efficiently deliver solutions that drive impactful client outcomes. The program delivers an improved experience for clients through benefits such as:

     

    • Accelerated time to value through enhanced delivery capabilities and increased capacity
    • Private label, joint co-marketing, and sales lead demand generation via CyberSheath’s comprehensive library of DFARS compliance subject matter and collateral
    • Flexible DFARS partner pricing with models designed to align cost structure with client’s service and capacity consumption
    • Enhanced customer care from a dedicated engineering staff that can assist in advanced project deployments and defend against premeditated, persistent cyberattacks
    • CyberSheath MSSP SOC Service staffed by experienced security professionals that have accumulated vast knowledge of network threats, detection and mitigation, and an in-depth understanding of CyberSheath’s DFARS compliance and security capabilities
    • Admission to CMMC Con 2022, the nation’s largest CMMC conference that helps contractors navigate their course through the evolving compliance landscape

     

    “Our relationship with CyberSheath allows us to provide best-in-class, secure, cloud-based solutions to address our customers’ complicated compliance needs like CMMC and NIST 800-171, ensuring that their cybersecurity posture is appropriate for protecting their critical and sensitive business data, whether it’s defense or commercial,” said Jeff Roberts, co-founder of principia/RAID. “With the strength of our CyberSheath partnership, we can empower more businesses to drive further innovation and more effectively manage their IT spend, positively impacting their business outcomes and meeting stringent U.S. DoD needs.”

    Federal Enclave Webinar

    The Chinese government is requiring all athletes, journalists, and spectators at the Winter Olympics to download the “My-2022” app on their phones. NBC News’ Joshua Johnson is joined by cyber security expert Eric Noonan to discuss how the watchdog group Citizen-lab warns those who download the app.

    RESTON, Va. — Jan. 25, 2022 CyberSheath Services International, the largest Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) managed service vendor, has introduced a new service that provides all federal contractors with a cost-effective, scalable solution to meet cybersecurity requirements across security, IT, and compliance.

     

    Federal Enclave is both a common-sense approach to protecting data amid ever-increasing cybersecurity requirements and the most comprehensive Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) compliant enclave. It ensures users that handle sensitive data always have secure access to an out-of-the-box compliant environment, secured and managed by CyberSheath. Based on Microsoft Azure, Federal Enclave can be situationally deployed on any of Azure’s cloud platforms or on premises.

     

    “Cybersecurity compliance requirements for federal contractors are increasing rapidly, and the complexity and cost is beyond the reach of many contractors,” said Eric Noonan, CEO of CyberSheath. “The government has shown a clear-eyed commitment to enforcing cybersecurity mandatory minimums and that is why we created the Federal Enclave, to help federal contractors protect and defend their corporate networks and achieve compliance. We’ve made it cost effective for federal contractors to comply with requirements like CMMC and NIST 800-171.”

     

    Federal Enclave is available to all federal contractors to speed adoption of cybersecurity requirements, eliminate the complexity of compliance, and reduce cost in one easily accessible environment.

     

    The DoD was the first federal entity to roll out mandatory minimums for cybersecurity with CMMC in 2020, and recently released a simplified, updated version with CMMC 2.0, and it’s expected that all federal agencies will eventually require cybersecurity compliance for federal contractors.

     

    Federal Enclave adheres to CMMC v1.02 and v2.0 as well as DFARS 252.204-7012, limits organizational controlled unclassified information (CUI) data sprawl, and controls role-based allowances to CUI. The new service includes:

    • Fixed prices and no hidden fees
    • First-ever CMMC Compliance-as-a-Service “dashboard cockpit” arms customers with information about current compliance status, security threat landscape and incident levels, and supply chain assessment
    • Options for facilitated self-attestation

     

    CyberSheath has helped more than 500 clients discover their compliance starting point and roadmap. Federal Enclave simplifies adherence to the difficult cybersecurity business requirements and puts CyberSheath in your corner to ensure compliance. Register for CyberSheath’s webinar to launch Federal Enclave at 12 p.m. EST on Feb. 23.

    RESTON, Va. — Dec.14, 2021 CyberSheath, the largest Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) managed service vendor for Department of Defense (DoD) contractors, announced an investment from Lightview Capital to expand its ability to secure the Defense Industrial Base (DIB).

     

    The investment will allow CyberSheath to add services that are critical to the federal contracting supply chain and explore acquisition opportunities that scale the company faster to serve a greater portion of the struggling market. CyberSheath research found that more than two thirds of companies in the DIB lacked appropriate access controls to secure controlled unclassified information.

     

    Theft of intellectual property and sensitive information across the DIB threatens economic and national security. Recently, the U.S. government has enhanced security mandates for companies looking to secure contracts with the DoD, creating more demand for services that help ensure compliance and support the integrity of U.S. government security.

     

    “Lightview’s investment is validation of the federal government’s commitment to enforcing mandatory cybersecurity minimums for defense contractors. As we’ve seen growing nation-state threats from countries like Russia, China, and Iran, the days of trust without verification are long gone,” said Eric Noonan, CEO of CyberSheath. “Contractors are struggling to find solutions as these threats become more prevalent and this investment will help ensure that national security is at the forefront of their operations.”

     

    CyberSheath was named to MSSP Alert’s top 250 MSSPs list for 2021, and has helped contractors internationally—from small, 50-employee operations, to large enterprises—navigate the complexities of IT, cybersecurity, and governance. CyberSheath’s managed service brings all three of those puzzle pieces together for one scalable, integrated solution that delivers both compliance and day-to-day operational security.

     

    Through the Lightview investment, CyberSheath will expand its customer base to canvass more of the DIB and reach new areas of a growing federal government supply chain.

     

    “CyberSheath’s managed services and technology platform addresses a critical challenge faced by Government Contractors to ensure national security and meet government cybersecurity and compliance standards,” says Rich Erickson, Co-founder and Managing Partner of Lightview Capital. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Cybersheath and supporting its next phase of growth in the fast growing $420 billion defense market.”

     

    The government’s recent announcement of CMMC 2.0 validated CyberSheath’s approach to the market and adherence to NIST 800-171, which is the backbone of CMMC 2.0. CyberSheath is hosting a webinar on Dec. 15 to further help contractors find what CMMC 2.0 means for their businesses.

    Fifth-Annual List Honors Leading MSSP, MDR and SOCaaS Cybersecurity Companies Worldwide

     

    RESTON, Va — Sept. 28, 2021 — MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has named CyberSheath to the Top 250 MSSPs list for 2021.

     

    The list and research identify and honor the top MSSPs, managed detection and response (MDR) and Security Operations Center as a Service (SOCaaS) providers worldwide.

     

    The rankings are based on MSSP Alert’s 2021 readership survey combined with the digital media site’s global editorial coverage of managed security services providers. The fifth-annual list and research report track the managed security service market’s ongoing growth and evolution.

     

    “As Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is implemented, defense contractors have been sold incomplete options causing them to overspend and under-comply. CyberSheath’s Managed Services deliver a complete solution for federal contractors seeking to achieve compliance with the new requirements and remain eligible to win Department of Defense business,” said Eric Noonan, CEO of CyberSheath. “Ranking so high on this list demonstrates just how critical our efforts have been in keeping defense contractors compliant and further illustrates how CMMC has changed the federal contracting landscape for the better.”

     

    “After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate CyberSheath on this year’s honor,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “Amid continued ransomware, malware and supply chain cyber attacks, the MSSP Alert readership and community continues to mitigate risks for businesses and government organizations worldwide.”

     

    Highlights from the associated MSSP Alert research include:

    • MSSP Revenue Growth & Financial Performance: MSSP honorees, on average, expect to generate $22.3 million in revenue for 2021, up 16% from $19.2 million in 2020. The growth rate remains consistent with last year’s report.
    • Geography: Honorees are headquartered in 26 different countries.
    • Profits: 85% of MSSPs surveyed expect to be profitable for fiscal year 2021, which is roughly even with 2020.
    • Security Operations Centers: 71% have in-house SOCs, 19% are hybrid, 8% completely outsource their SOCs, and 2% are reevaluating their SOC strategies.
    • Cyberattack Trends: The most frequent attacks targeting MSSP customers in 2021 include vulnerability exploits (87%), phishing (96%), and ransomware (89%) incidents.
    • Cybersecurity Solutions: In a continued sign of market fragmentation, MSSP survey participants mentioned 130 different hardware, software, cloud, and services vendors that assist their cybersecurity efforts — roughly even with our 2020 report.
    • New Managed Security Services Offered: In addition to traditional managed security services, capabilities such as MDR (91%) have now gone mainstream. Plus, fast-growth services offered include SOC as a service (76%), XDR (67%), cyber talent as a service (43%) and cloud security posture management (41%).

     

    The Top 250 MSSPs list and research were overseen by Content Czar Joe Panettieri. Find the online list and associated report here: http://www.msspalert.com/top250.

     

    CyberSheath is continuing to educate the Defense Industrial Base on the ins and outs of CMMC with a virtual event on Sept. 29. CMMC Con 2021 will equip defense contractors with a better understanding of the evolving threat landscape, the impact of cybersecurity compliance law aimed at mitigating these threats, and the how-to for solving these challenges.

    RESTON, Va. — Sept. 8, 2021 Leading managed CMMC compliance provider CyberSheath announced today that Amit Yoran will provide the keynote address at CMMC Con, the nation’s largest CMMC conference. The virtual, one-day conference kicks off at 9 a.m. EDT on Wednesday, September 29, 2021. Registration for the event is still available.

     

    Yoran, the chairman and CEO of Tenable, sits on the board of directors for the Center for Internet Security, previously served as president of RSA Security, and was the founding director of the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) program in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Yoran will speak with CyberSheath CEO Eric Noonan on President Biden’s executive order on cybersecurity, what other governmental efforts are necessary to shore up cybersecurity, and what actions companies can take to better protect themselves from attacks.

     

    CMMC Con will also include a discussion with Aries Security CEO Brian Markus and lawyer Greg Thyberg speaking on the False Claims Act case, a panel on Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (PTACs) with a live Q&A, and a session hosted by Microsoft on evolving technology.

     

    Microsoft, a platinum sponsor for the event, will cover Microsoft 365 and Azure in its session, with a focus on CMMC ML3 preparations, and leveraging government cloud offerings. Phil West, U.S. National Director of Modern Work and Security at Microsoft, will be speaking at the session.

     

    “Last year we saw a huge response from attendees before CMMC compliance was even required,” Noonan said. “Now that it has taken effect, and the need for comprehensive cybersecurity is greater than ever, we look forward to equipping contractors in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) with a greater understanding of the evolving threat landscape and tools to help them face those challenges.”

     

    CyberSheath recently conducted free training to support the defense contractor community to meet their compliance objectives. The five-part compliance training covered a range of topics and prepared attendees with the knowledge and tools that will make them successful. At the end of the training module, 30 participants were awarded “black belt” status. Those that received black belts will be honored at CMMC Con 2021 through the displaying of their names at the event.

    RESTON, Va. — May 18, 2021 — Leading Managed CMMC Compliance provider, CyberSheath, has been chosen to be a part of a select few official resellers for Microsoft GCC High and Office 365 GCC licensing. This adds another opportunity for CyberSheath to help the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) meet the federal government’s compliance and security requirements.

    “The ability to sell Microsoft GCC High licensing makes CyberSheath a one-stop CMMC shop,” said Eric Noonan, CEO of CyberSheath. “Unlike other Microsoft partners who only resell the licensing, we also offer all the services — security, IT, and governance — that the DIB needs to manage CMMC compliance.”

    In addition to its product and service offerings, CyberSheath has taken the lead on educating government contractors about strategies for CMMC compliance at its annual CMMC Con. The one-day event, returning on September 29, 2021, will reveal the evolving threat landscape, the impact of cybersecurity compliance law, and how to solve these challenges.

    CyberSheath CEO,  Eric Noonan, provides commentary for CBS’s Jeff Pegues on an episode of America Changed Forever, taking a deep dive into the Colonial Pipeline hack and the lack of regulations that leave our critical infrastructure vulnerable.

    CyberSheath CEO, Eric Noonan, speaks to the lack of regulation on privately controlled networks that may result in ransomware attacks like Colonial Pipeline. 

    RESTON, Va. — May 12, 2021 — The nation’s largest CMMC conference is back by popular demand! CMMC Con 2021 picks up where last year’s conference left off, featuring expert speakers from across the government and Defense Industrial Base offering actionable strategies for CMMC compliance. Hosted by leading Managed CMMC Compliance provider CyberSheath, the one-day CMMC Con 2021 kicks off at 9 a.m. EDT on Wednesday, September 29, 2021. This no cost conference is now open for registration.

     

    CMMC Con 2021 will focus on the evolving compliance landscape that small and medium-sized contractors face, with sessions focused on:

     

    • Evolving threats, including the escalation in nation-state cyberattacks like SolarWinds.
    • Evolving law, including SPRS submittal of NIST 800-171 assessment, third-party validation of CMMC compliance prior to contract award, the False Claims Act, and the potential loss of DoD revenue.
    • Evolving scope, examining the CMMC-AB roadmap and adoption of CMMC in other federal organizations beyond the DoD.

     

    The conference will welcome back popular speakers as well as introduce new ones, including:

     

    • Robert Spalding, retired Brigadier General, USAF, to address the threat from nation states.
    • Keith K. Nakasone, Federal Strategist, VMware formally the Deputy Assistant Commissioner, IT Acquisition Operations, FAS/GSA, in a Q&A on CMMC beyond the DoD.
    • Jeff Dalton, sharing his perspective as CMMC-AB vice chairman on the progression of CMMC and the path forward.
    • Expert panel discussion with senior executives from primes and sub-contractors, including foreign-owned, large, and small contractors, who will share their experience managing CMMC compliance.

     

    “Last year, we had more than 1,000 attendees at CMMC Con — before the law had even changed to make CMMC a reality for the Defense Industrial Base,” said Eric Noonan, CyberSheath CEO. “A year later, the conference could not come at a more critical time, as compliance stands in the way of revenue for every defense contractor in the supply chain. By attending CMMC Con 2021, defense contractors will better understand the nation state threats that made the CMMC necessary, the impact of compliance law, and most importantly, the how-to of compliance to stay eligible for future DoD contracts.”

    RESTON, Va. — April 20, 2021 — CyberSheath Services International today introduced the next evolution of its CMMC Managed Services, including its CMMCEnclave. Based on Microsoft Azure, CMMCEnclave is the first enclave with optional management of multiple levels of CMMC. Covering all three dimensions of compliance — IT, governance, and security — CyberSheath’s CMMCEnclave delivers high-value custodial security of CUI while minimizing business interruptions to processes, procedures, and people. The result is simple, future-proofed compliance for the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) at a lower cost.

    All Prime and Subcontractors to the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) must be certified compliant with CMMC to obtain future DoD Contracts. The level of the CMMC certificate depends on the type and nature of the information that flows down from the Prime contractor. Unfortunately, no small or mid-size business has the IT, cybersecurity, and governance expertise to meet these requirements without a Managed Service Provider.

    “Our goal is to take the difficult business requirement of CMMC compliance and turn it into a simple solution offering so contractors can remain eligible for DoD contracts,” said Eric Noonan, CEO of CyberSheath. “CyberSheath’s CMMC Managed Services deliver a complete solution with the IT, cybersecurity, and governance capabilities needed to achieve and maintain compliance. With fixed-price services and no hidden fees, our managed CMMC compliance meets you where you are with better, faster, and less complex adherence to CMMC requirements.”

    CyberSheath’s CMMCEnclave adheres to all 130 controls of CMMC ML3, while limiting organizational CUI sprawl and driving role-based access to CUI. It includes four different use-case commitment levels based on contractors’ functionality and business needs, including:

    • External CUI communication: A secure SharePoint enclave, this option can be hosted in GCC high or commercial cloud depending on whether data is subject to exit controls.
    • CyberCloud — Shared Service: Secured using Active Directory Partitions and Windows Virtual Desktop, this option shares desktops while data security is enforced to CMMC compliance standards. Designed for users who only access Office applications, SharePoint Online, and OneDrive.
    • CyberCloud — Hybrid Cloud: This option segregates customers on private network segments with network security boundaries on top of Active Directory partitioning. It keeps desktops private and only accessible by a single company, with options for private application servers on a customer network segment. Designed for users who need an affordable cloud platform and use custom applications or file servers.
    • CyberCloud — Private Cloud: Keep all components, including Active Directory, completely private, with all servers and desktops residing in the customer’s Microsoft Azure tenant. Customers can host any applications or files in their environment and can optionally connect the enclave to their corporate infrastructure.

    In addition to the CMMCEnclave, CyberSheath’s CMMC Managed Services include a self-service compliance dashboard showing compliance status, an inventory of DFARS compliance artifacts and evidence, and documentation of the System Security Plan (SSP). The dashboard gives insight into the current security threat landscape and incident levels as well as a supply chain assessment and the current performance of the CMMCEnclave.

    What steps should the Biden Administration take to prevent a future breach of government agencies like the SolarWinds attack last year? Read Eric Noonan’s, CyberSheath CEO, article to find out  https://bit.ly/2Ng5UPR

    RESTON, Va.—February 2, 2020—CyberSheath Services International today launched its Managed IT Services for Defense Contractors to ensure compliance with the new cybersecurity standards for commercial contractors of the United States government. The managed services include a Shared Security Compliance Framework to ensure compliance for both DFARS Clause 252.204-7012 / NIST SP 800-171 and the new DFARS 252.204-7019-7021 CMMC requirements.

    When combined with CyberSheath’s existing Managed Compliance and Security Services, the new Managed IT Services cover the full spectrum of managed services needs for most U.S. Defense Industrial Base (DIB) contractors. CyberSheath has long recognized that a large part of IT delivery, tasks such as patching and asset management, are foundational to NIST 800-171 and CMMC compliance, and customers need a force multiplying solution for Managed IT services. This offering is only available to defense contractors and uniquely built to make CMMC and NIST 800-171 compliance a natural outcome of day-to-day operations.

    This new consolidated solution is anchored on Microsoft technology or Microsoft Solution Partner technology, but flexible enough to “meet you where you are.” It has the distinct ability to add compliance or security-as-a-service either upon initial onboarding, or at any time during the subscription period. As a “Hosted Compliance,” it combines elements of MSSP and Managed IT and uses a Microsoft-focused technology stack, including Azure Government Blueprints, Microsoft 365 Government (GCC High), and the full strength of the vast Department of Defense (DoD)-approved Microsoft security portfolio. CyberSheath’s CMMC Managed Services future-proof clients against CMMC policy changes and new implementation requirements.

    “Any defense contractor that fails to comply with the CMMC will not be doing business with the DoD moving forward as the DoD now prevents non-compliant contractors from participating in DoD contract awards,” said Andy Shooman, COO at CyberSheath Services International. “Our IT managed services are built for the many defense contractors, both Primes and Subs, that still don’t fully understand the DFARS requirements and believe that their weakest link to compliance may be their existing IT services. Simply put, the new DFARS rules raise the stakes and companies that don’t quickly become compliant will be left out of DoD contracts. Our IT managed services ensure that doesn’t happen.”

    The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) established the CMMC as a new security measure to protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), Federal Contract Information (FCI), and other sensitive data residing on systems and networks owned by defense contractors. The DoD requires all of its contractors and suppliers to comply with the new CMMC standards at a given level and undergo a certification process based on review by an accredited third-party assessment organization prior to contract award.

    CyberSheath uses a proven AIM™ (Assess – Implement – Manage) methodology to meet defense contractors where they are and bring them up to standard both for existing regulatory requirements and CMMC. CyberSheath offers five CMMC levels of assured compliance, ranging from premise-based technology companies to cloud-driven FedRAMP High environments. Leveraging AIM™ to identify gaps against CMMC requirements, CyberSheath quickly implements any needed changes and revises architectures to maintain desired levels of CMMC compliance.

    CyberSheath takes ownership of CMMC compliance, leveraging a Shared Responsibility Model, a concept uniquely adapted from cloud providers and applied to CMMC Managed Services. This management framework dictates the security obligations of a CMMC compliance environment and its users to ensure accountability and define where and how security measures should be applied, with a special focus on CUI and other sensitive government data. The result is a self-reinforcing model that reduces the burden on government contractors and ensures compliance.

    “Frankly, defense contractors have seen a lot of changes in cybersecurity compliance over the past year, but we have been delivering audit-ready, U.S. DoD compliance-focused managed services for more than five years in response to the original NIST 800-171 requirements and know we can assist contractors expeditiously with their needs,” said Mr. Shooman.

    Protecting intellectual property in the name of US economic and national security should be part of every company’s fiduciary duty.

    CyberSheath CEO expands on these points in his article for DarkReading http://ow.ly/SCE350BtWgz

    The recent breaches tied to SolarWinds have caused a national cybersecurity emergency. So how can we respond?

    1. Prioritize cybersecurity during the Biden administration’s first 100 days.
    2. Stop victim shaming.
    3. Prioritize public-private partnerships.
    4. New regulation
    5. Invest in what works.

    CyberSheath CEO expands on these points in his article for DarkReading https://bit.ly/2WzmYlh

     

    RESTON, Va.—December 1, 2020—CyberSheath Services International today announced it has earned Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Registered Provider Organization (RPO) certification. This new achievement fortifies the company’s position as the leader in CMMC compliance solutions and services meant to eliminate theft of intellectual property and sensitive information across the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) and Department of Defense (DoD) supply chain.

    This news comes on the heels of CyberSheath hosting some 1,000 registrants for an incredibly successful CMMC Con 2020 virtual conference in November. CyberSheath also wrote a book on CMMC – the CMMC Companion 2020/2021 Edition, which is widely seen as a defense contractor’s playbook.

    “By staying current on certifications and changes in compliance requirements, we’re positioned as the partner of choice for CMMC compliance,” says Eric Noonan, CEO of CyberSheath. “The RPO credential formally recognizes what our existing customers already know, that DoD contractors can trust in CyberSheath’s ability to deliver turnkey solutions for cybersecurity compliance requirements. Our managed services approach to CMMC and NIST 800-171 compliance meets suppliers where they are, significantly reducing cost and complexity for their business.”

    The CMMC model is a set of mandatory cybersecurity requirements that all 300,000-plus DoD contractors must implement and then validate by an independent third party before contract award. The CMMC Accreditation Body, which is managing the CMMC rollout on behalf of the DoD, announced requirements and opened applications for multiple credentialed roles, including RPO, this summer.

    CyberSheath’s staff have been working with the DoD since 2008 from the inception of voluntary cybersecurity requirements all the way through the current mandatory CMMC requirements, and the RPO credential is the next logical step in this journey.

    According to the CMMC-AB, RPOs are authorized to represent the organization as familiar with basic constructs of the CMMC Standard, and are qualified as:

    • Aware — Employs staff trained in basic CMMC methodology.
    • Registered Practitioner Staffed — Offers non-certified consultative services.
    • Targeted — CMMC Assessment preparation.
    • Trusted — Bound by a professional code of conduct.

    RPO status means CyberSheath has agreed to the CMMC-AB Code of Professional Conduct, can deliver non-certified CMMC consulting services, and is listed on the CMMC-AB Marketplace.

    CMMC CompanionRESTON, Va.—November 24, 2020—CyberSheath Services International has published the 2020 / 2021 CMMC Companion guide to help defense contractors navigate and comply with new rules from the Department of Defense (DoD) to secure the Defense Industrial Base from cyberthreats. This new resource for defense contractors provides a clear, concise primer that summarizes the CMMC, discusses why the rule has been created, and proposes useful tips for its mandatory implementation.

    “The defense industry has been clamoring for help as new rules emerge and the risk of losing out on defense contracts and revenue becomes more real,” says Eric Noonan, CEO of CyberSheath. “CyberSheath has been supporting compliance initiatives for defense contractors and other companies since 2012, and they’ve channeled that experience into this new resource. Anyone dealing with CMMC will gain enormous benefits in terms of understanding the history, terminology, approach, and future direction.”

    Though the industry has been charged with meeting stringent requirements for years, recent updates with real deadlines have created urgency and angst among prime and subprime contractors. Not only are the prime contractors ensuring their own compliance, but they are also putting pressure on their suppliers to verify compliance. If defense contractors do not comply, they risk the security of the supply chain, national security, the ability to secure DoD contracts, and, thus, their revenue.

    New rules under the recent DFARS interim law rule, coupled with requests from prime contractor demands mean suppliers must confirm their NIST 800-171 Assessment Score, provide a Plan of Action and Milestones (POAM) estimated completion date (ECD) for any unimplemented requirements, their status and ECD for an additional 20 CMMC practices, and their status and ECD for the CMMC Level 2 and 3 maturity processes. On top of that, suppliers have to provide updates on their progress until all practices and progress are implemented, as well as their “estimated date for closure of all NIST SP 800-171 POAM items, and the expected closure date for the additional controls.”

    The new CMMC Companion guide comes on the heels of the first-ever CMMC Con, a virtual gathering hosted by CyberSheath attended by some 1,000 CMMC partners, including government stakeholders, services providers, and contractors.

    RESTON, Va.—October 29, 2020—CyberSheath Services International today announced that it has been selected to join the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA) as one of the association’s first CMMC-focused managed security service providers.

    “MISA members are cybersecurity industry leaders,” said Eric Noonan, CEO at CyberSheath. “They’re unified by the common goal of helping secure our customers by offering unique and valuable customized expertise and making the association more effective as it becomes more diverse.”

    CyberSheath has extensive Microsoft expertise, including professional and managed security services for a wide array of U.S. defense contractors, and was nominated for MISA for their managed security service offerings for Azure Sentinel and Microsoft Defender for Endpoint. CyberSheath uses a Microsoft technology stack fueled by Microsoft Azure Sentinel, the cloud-native Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution that quickly identifies security threats across hybrid enterprises.

    MISA began as an ecosystem of independent software vendors (ISVs) that integrated their security products with Microsoft’s to better defend against a world of increasing threats. Due to increased demand for a closely interwoven security ecosystem, the association is growing and launching an invitation-only pilot program for select managed security service providers.

    MISA plays a vital role in reducing the cost and complexity of integrating disparate security tools. Adding managed security service providers promises to increase the ecosystem’s value even more by offering an extra layer of threat protection without requiring day-to-day involvement of in-house security teams,” said Andy Shooman, COO at CyberSheath. “It’s another important step in both strengthening and simplifying security at a time when risk mitigation is one of IT’s highest priorities.”

    “The Microsoft Intelligent Security Association has grown into a vibrant ecosystem comprised of the most reliable and trusted security software vendors across the globe,” said Rani Lofstrom, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Microsoft Security. “Our members, like CyberSheath, share Microsoft’s commitment to collaboration within the cybersecurity community to improve our customers’ ability to predict, detect, and respond to security threats faster.”

    The conference will feature several keynote speakers, including:

    • Katie Arrington, Chief Information Security Officer for the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment, in a facilitated question-and-answer session
    • Robert Spalding, retired Brigadier General, USAF, speaking on the threat from China
    • Richard Wakeman, Senior Director – Aerospace & Defense – Microsoft Azure Global, offering an overview of what Microsoft is doing to assist the DIB in government compliance
    • A panel discussion with current DIB CEOs on how they are approaching these complex issues

    “This will be the most important conference we’ve ever held, given the state of DIB cybersecurity and its impact on our national defense and overall global economic competitiveness,” said Eric Noonan, the CEO Of CyberSheath. “We’ve designed this event to give defense contractors a better understanding of the threat from nation states that made the CMMC necessary, and most importantly, the specific steps they need to take to be eligible for future DoD contracts. Attendees will leave this event clear eyed around the why, what, and how of CMMC.”

    At the end of this groundbreaking event, all attendees will be well-versed on the threat landscape, new rule changes, requirements and ramifications imposed on the DIB, and how to move forward in the changed world of DoD acquisition. Registered attendees will also receive a complimentary e-book described as “the Rosetta Stone” of CMMC compliance.

    RESTON, Va.—September 16, 2020—CyberSheath Services International today launched its Managed Services for the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) to ensure compliance with the new cybersecurity standards for commercial contractors of the United States government. The managed services include a Shared Security Compliance Framework to guarantee compliance for both DFARS Clause 252.204-7012 / NIST SP 800-171 and evolving CMMC requirements.

    Using a Microsoft-focused technology stack including Azure Government Blueprints, Microsoft 365 Government (GCC High), and the full strength of the vast Department of Defense (DoD)-approved Microsoft security portfolio, CyberSheath’s CMMC Managed Services future-proofs clients against CMMC policy changes and new implementation requirements.

    The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) established the CMMC as a new security measure to protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), Federal Contract Information (FCI), and other sensitive data residing on systems and networks owned by defense contractors. The DoD requires all of its contractors and suppliers to comply with the new CMMC standards at a given level and undergo a certification process based on review by an accredited third-party assessment organization prior to contract award.

    CyberSheath uses a proven AIM™ (Assess – Implement – Manage) methodology to meet defense contractors where they are and bring them up to standard for existing regulatory requirements and the proper CMMC level. CyberSheath offers five CMMC levels of assured compliance, ranging from premise-based technology companies to cloud-driven FedRAMP High environments. Leveraging AIM™ to identify gaps against CMMC requirements, CyberSheath quickly implements any needed changes and revises architectures to maintain desired levels of CMMC compliance.

    CyberSheath takes ownership of CMMC compliance, leveraging a Shared Responsibility Model, a concept uniquely adapted from cloud providers and applied to CMMC Managed Services. This management framework dictates the security obligations of a CMMC compliance environment and its users to ensure accountability and define where and how security measures should be applied, with a special focus on CUI and other sensitive government data. The result is a self-reinforcing model that reduces the burden on government contractors and ensures compliance.

    “Any defense contractor that fails to comply with the CMMC will not be doing business with DoD moving forward. Our managed services are built for the many defense contractors, both Primes and Subs, who still don’t fully understand the CMMC requirements and don’t want to be left out of DoD contracts,” said Eric Noonan, Founder and CEO of CyberSheath Services International. “Frankly, CMMC might be new, but we have been delivering audit-ready, compliance-focused managed services for more than five years in response to the NIST 800-171 requirements. 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.”

    Mandana Javaheri, Global Director, Security Partner Development at Microsoft said, “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.”
