COACT named ‘Candidate C3PAO’ by CMMC Accreditation Body

Columbia, Maryland – May 10th, 2021: COACT, Inc. is excited to announce its status as a Certified Third-Party Assessment Organization (C3PAO) Candidate. The C3PAO Candidate status indicates that the CMMC Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB) vetted and approved COACT as a C3PAO applicant.

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a new requirement that was designed to ensure Department of Defense (DoD) contractors and subcontractors implement appropriate cybersecurity practices to protect both Controlled Unclassified information (CUI) and Federal Contract Information (FCI). CMMC was established to replace the old self-attestation model associated with contractor information system compliance. It is expected that over 300,000 members of the Defense Industrial Base (DiB) will require CMMC certifications to be performed by an accredited CMMC C3PAO in order to continue providing services to DoD customer organizations.

COACT has a long history within the cybersecurity industry and a wealth of knowledge related to multiple security and compliance domains. Our team of Security Analysts possess multiple industry certifications and many years of experience. As an accredited FedRAMP 3PAO in good standing, companies seeking CMMC certification can leverage our experience and accredited Quality System during consulting and assessment efforts.
