Cybersecurity across Danish defense supply chain goal of Celerium, CenSec partnershipNews
February 10, 2021
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. Celerium Inc. announced a new partnership with CenSec, the prime Danish cluster organization for companies specializing in high-tech industries like defense, homeland security, space, aerospace, and cybersecurity. CenSec will be a member of Celerium's Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Academy International Alliance program in an effort to bring CMMC awareness to the Danish defense industry.
The CMMC program was developed by the U.S. Department of Defense in conjunction with Carnegie Mellon University in an effort to improve cybersecurity across the defense supply chain.
According to officials, it is designed to provide scalable cybersecurity requirements based on five different levels of compliance. Accordingly, prime contractors and their subcontractors may be required to comply with CMMC in order to be eligible to be awarded DoD contracts – and companies within other industries and international countries may be impacted.
In addition to participation in the International Alliance program, Celerium claims that it will partner with CenSec to bring awareness and knowledge of cybersecurity practices that can help fortify the cyber defense of companies within CenSec's member base.
