RESTON, Va. Dun & Bradstreet, global provider of business decisioning data and analytics, and QOMPLX, an intelligent decision platform provider, announced a strategic partnership to provide more than 100,000 Defense Industrial Base (DIB) companies and their subcontractors with assessment and certification as required by the upcoming Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework.
The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has created the CMMC in order to assess and enhance the cybersecurity posture of the Defense Industrial Base.
The CMMC is intended to serve as a verification mechanism to ensure appropriate levels of cybersecurity practices and processes are in place to maintain basic cyber hygiene and protect controlled unclassified information (CUI) on the Department's industry partners' networks.
According to the participating companies, the partnership will leverage the resources of both companies and is ideally suited to help both small- to medium-sized suppliers understand and secure certification, and also help larger defense contractors evaluate and secure subcontractors within their own network.
