CMMC Third-Party Assessor Organization (C3PAO)

Magnus (A NXTKey Company) is proud to announce that it has been selected to be a registered CMMC Third-Party Assessor Organization (C3PAO) approved by the CMMC Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB) to provide CMMC Assessments and Certifications. We have CMMC Provisional Assessors & Registered Practioners trained and certified to perform provisional assessments and certifications during the interim DFARS rule.

The CMMC is a unified security standard and a certification process developed by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to protect the security of Federal Contract Information (FCI) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) within the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). CMMC will be phased into DoD RFPs by early 2021 at which time all prime and sub-contractors doing business with the DoD will be required to achieve a specific CMMC level certification as a prerequisite to new contract awards.

CMMC has defined five maturity levels for security practices ranging from Basic to Advanced. As a C3PAO, Magnus delivers assessments with Certified Assessor-led teams for clients and provides advisory services to other organizations seeking certification.
