Telos becomes authorized CMMC-AB RPO

Telos Corporation announced on June 22 that it has been approved as a Registered Provider Organization (RPO) by the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB).

As a CMMC-AB RPO, Telos offers consulting services to more than 300,000 organizations seeking CMMC compliance to be eligible for contract awards by the Department of Defense (DoD).

While there are hundreds of RPOs listed in the CMMC-AB Marketplace, Telos offers an enormous depth of experience in assessing and implementing federal security standards. Using proven methodologies honed through decades of experience with the DoD, Telos’ CMMC Registered Practitioners (RPs) and other highly qualified personnel will assist with:

  • Scoping the CMMC effort
  • Cataloging CMMC Contract Requirements
  • Identifying the data supply chain for federal contract information (FCI) and controlled unclassified information (CUI)
  • Determining CMMC level and control selection
  • Modifying security architecture required for CMMC compliance
  • Performing self-assessments and gap analysis
  • Remediating vulnerabilities
  • Generating a NIST SP 800-171 DOD Assessment Methodology Scorecard
  • Developing a continuous monitoring and compliance strategy

“Telos is a leading expert in assessing and implementing cybersecurity for federal systems and information and is a natural fit for this market,” said Gianna Price, a CMMC-AB RP and a Telos Solutions Architect. “Our cleared and credentialed security experts offer the skills, capabilities, and background to prepare organizations to establish and demonstrate cybersecurity maturity.”

Organizations that store, process, or transmit DoD federal contract information (FCI) or controlled unclassified information (CUI) are required to comply with CMMC, the new DoD standard for handling FCI and CUI in non-government systems. In a phased approach that has already been initiated, the DOD will identify a CMMC Level required for each contract. Only organizations that have achieved the specified CMMC Level, with validation and certification from the CMMC-AB, will be considered for the contract award.
