What Makes our Cybersecurity Assessments Different?

As a member of the Defense Industrial Base you have so many reliable partners to choose from and we hope you work with mission driven companies.

Cybersecurity is a national security issue, not a business model.

At CyberDI we take this truth to heart as our CMMC Registered Professionals work with your company to complete a DFARS Interim self assessment or to conduct a gap analysis as we all prepare for CMMC.

Our focus on feedback for growth and years of FedRamp level services make CyberDI a perfect partner.

Feedback for Growth

So many people have sounded the alarm bells to the additional practices CMMC adds to the NIST 800-171 scores. Even more have panicked about subtle differences and deadlines around the DFARS Interim Rules set to go into effect on December 1st.

We begin by encouraging the world to relax. We have time, nobody has to have a score uploaded by 2020-12-01 in order to continue their work. Instead of the market hype we want companies to focus on the culture of maturation.

We view cybersecurity assessments and reports as stories of your growth into great cyber hygiene capabilities. We want to focus on institutionalizing the processes outlined in the CMMC model.

To accomplish this goal with our partners we utilize the Claim, Connect, Action (Tepper & Flynn, 2018) framework against the NIST 800-171 controls. First we assess the Observable Evidence and make a CLAIM against the control. Did you meet the control and, if applicable, what point value do we assign?

Next we CONNECT this claim to your observable evidence. We talk to the right people, look in the right places, and test the right stuff. We utilize both quantitative and qualitative to substantiate our claim.

Finally we provide you with ACTIONable Feedback to help you improve your cyber hygiene. We do not provide audits. We do assessments to help you grow by delivering feedback aligned to the CMMC model. When you work with CyberDI you get the best security experts our nation has to offer.
