If your Louisiana Business works with the Department of Defense, most likely you need to work towards CMMC Compliance.

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a unified standard for implementing cybersecurity across the defense industrial base (DIB).   The CMMC is the DoD's response to significant compromises of sensitive defense information located on contractors' information systems.   This set of guidelines and standards is a powerful tool that can dramatically overhaul your security.

If you ignore the CMMC guidelines, you stand a serious chance of either losing business or falling victim to the increasing waves of hackers and cybercriminals.

Turn Key Solutions is actively helping many of our clients here in Louisiana prepare for CMMC Levels 1, 2 and 3 compliance.    To get help working on your CMMC compliance today, call us now at 225-224-6595 to schedule a no-risk consultation.


Does CMMC even apply to your company?

If you're a DoD contractor:

DoD contractors in Louisiana should immediately learn the CMMC's technical requirements and prepare not only for certification, but long-term cybersecurity improvements and vigilance.  DoD contractors that have already started to evaluate their practices, procedures and gaps when the details are finalized will be very well-positioned to work through the process and meet the mandatory CMMC contract requirements for upcoming projects.

If you're not a DoD contractor, does CMMC apply to you?

At Turn Key Solutions, after careful review, we believe that the guidelines and protections outlined in many levels of CMMC 1.02 make great sense for every business, no matter what your industry or who your customers are.   So from a legal sense, maybe it doesn't apply to you.... but from a "best practices" perspective, we believe every business in Louisiana should familiarize themselves with CMMC and work towards being able to pass a self-audit of, at least Levels 1 or 2.

As a brief idea of how understanding CMMC can help every business, let's look at just the 1st 2 of 5 Levels of the CMMC framework:

  • Levels 1 outlines basic very solid "Basic Cyber Hygiene" practices and processes that every Louisiana business needs right now.   These are standards that are 100% compatible and overlap with security frameworks from almost every country, industry, and regulatory body we know of.
  • Level 2 details "Intermediate Cyber Hygiene" practices and processes, and starts helping organizations better classify what is their most valuable data and invest their security resources and efforts most wisely.  Level 2 also focuses on helping organizations "develop mature capabilities by documenting their processes and then practicing them as documented."

The CMMC establishes five certification levels that reflect the maturity and reliability of a company's cybersecurity infrastructure to safeguard sensitive government information on contractors' information systems.  The five levels are tiered and build upon each other's technical requirements. Each level adds additional, more intense processes to implement specific cybersecurity-based practices.
