CMMC Third-Party Assessment Organization (C3PAO) Services

CMMC assessments will be conducted not by the U.S. government but by Certified Assessors sponsored by C3PAOs, independent organizations authorized and accredited by the CyberAB. C3PAOs must complete an approved training and must show independence in their work. We were proud to receive our C3PAO authorization in September 2022.
