Cybersecurity assessment certification achieved by KratosNews
June 16, 2021
SAN DIEGO, Calif. Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. announced that it has been named by the federal government as one of the first two Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Third Party Assessment Organizations (C3PAO). As a C3PAO, Kratos will be able to conduct CMMC Level 1-3 assessments once the government completes certain preparatory and authorization steps.
The CMMC is a new unified security standard and a certification process developed by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to protect the security of Federal Contract Information (FCI) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) within the Defense Industrial Base (DIB).
In accordance with recent updates to DFARS 252.204, the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (OUSD) will begin a phased rollout requiring contractors to achieve CMMC certification. Once the rollout is complete, nearly all companies seeking to respond to DoD proposal requests will require CMMC certification.
Kratos' services include vulnerability assessments, enterprise security architecture design, application security testing, and risk management processes. Kratos cybersecurity services support the development and operation of proactive cybersecurity programs, the development of enterprise cloud security strategies, and the establishment of sound and practical information security architectures tailored to organizational needs.
