As CEO of Duffy Compliance, I have learned a lot about the needs of small businesses. As a small business owner myself, I know it can be hard to find vendors and service providers who really understand the needs of small businesses or who actually take the time to design their products and services with the “little guy” in mind.
Many small businesses are government contractors and must meet the DFARS requirements to work with the DOD. This includes protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and eventually adhering to the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), which also includes a 3rd-party verification component.
For a large organization, most of the processes and practices are probably going to be covered. But what about a small government contractor who has five people, all working remotely from their laptops? How will they store and process CUI data securely? How will they change their normal daily activities to improve the security of their systems? For these smaller organizations, becoming CMMC-compliant may look like a nightmare.
With that concern in mind, my team and I have been working on a cloud-based platform to deliver a secure virtual desktop that provides a protected, managed environment that will not only meet the CMMC Maturity Level 3 requirements, but will also provide an almost instant turn-key CMMC compliance solution.
We are proud to announce the launch of CUI-SafeHarbor. We are the first U.S. based compliance service provider to offer a CMMC Level 3 compliant-ready environment.
You will see more from Duffy Compliance regarding CUI-SafeHarbor over the next few months, but you can learn more about it here.
CUI-SafeHarbor is an effective turn-key solution that offers the quickest and easiest way to start protecting CUI data without incurring the cost of building, supporting, and maintaining the secure infrastructure yourself.
If you would like to talk to us to see if CUI-SafeHarbor is a solution to meet your compliance needs, do not hesitate to be in touch.
