Paragon Cyber Solutions, LLC, a Tampa, Florida based, information security company, received approval to conduct CMMC Assessments and Certifications.

TAMPA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, March 16, 2021 / -- Paragon Cyber Solutions, LLC, a Tampa, Florida based, DBE, SBE, MBE, woman, minority, veteran-owned, HUBZone certified information security company, received approval from the CMMC Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB) to provide CMMC Assessments and Certifications. CMMC C3PAOs are the only businesses authorized to conduct CMMC assessments.

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a unified security standard and a certification process developed by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to protect the security of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), Federal Contract Information (FCI), and Covered Defense Information (CDI) within the Defense Industrial Base (DIB).

CMMC is starting to be phased into DoD RFPs requiring all prime and sub-contractors doing business with the DoD to achieve a specific CMMC level certification as a prerequisite to receive new contract awards and a requirement to maintain existing contracts.

“We are excited to be an approved C3PAO and to provide CMMC certification services to the DIB. This designation is in line with our current service offering as we work with companies to implement in-depth solutions to strengthen their security posture and decrease their risk of exposure. Over the past year, we have helped prepare companies of all sizes for the CMMC rollout through our advisory consulting and managed services. Our significant growth enabled us to expand our CMMC offerings. Becoming a C3PAO was a logical step for us to take to ensure we’re doing our part to help protect our nation’s sensitive data and assets,” said Paragon’s CEO, Courtney H. Jackson.
