    News:

    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.”

    • 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.”
