Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)
CMMC creates a new baseline that seeks to ensure all contractors make meaningful investments in cybersecurity.
Compliance and Regulations
CMMC was launched by the Department of Defense (DoD) to bolster cybersecurity controls and process by enhancing security visibility and accountability for defense contractors. If your company has a DoD contract, then CMMC applies to you.
Building upon the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), CMMC requires every contractor to be audited and certified by a 3rd party auditor.
Benefits of Compliance
CMMC requires DoD contractors to achieve a designated cybersecurity level in order to qualify for contract awards. These standards are also designed to protect the networks of government contractors for the sector’s own benefit. It’s a win-win scenario.
The certification also helps contractors with their preparedness for cyberattacks, and with incident prevention. Even if an attack occurs, CMMC enables a faster recovery, which would reduce associated penalties or financial implications.

Our company is security oriented with all technicians required to pass annual background checks and maintain HIPAA certifications. Every backup we setup is encrypted, both locally and in the cloud. We help our clients incorporate safe practices within their business by providing Acceptable Use Policy (AUPs) templates. Also, we educate clients on why such measures are needed to keep them (and their business) safe.
All our clients not only receive support from an entire team of professionals but also their own “Account Manager”. This person is their direct contact for special requests, questions, and projects. Our focus is quality support with a personal touch.
Stop waiting days (or even weeks) to get in touch with someone. We are available during normal business hours or on call for emergency service if needed. Our team consists of all local technicians in the US, so no more calls overseas. We can solve your issues remotely, over the phone, or onsite.
I want to take this opportunity to thank IT Support RI for allowing Leo and JT to work with me on the NIST/CMMC project. They have done yeoman’s work and have been an invaluable asset to this project… not even mentioning the burden they have taken off of my shoulders. Yesterday’s 8-hour NIST Assessment audit was a good example of their professionalism, expertise, tireless efforts, and focus on “what’s best for the customer”. The auditor has mentioned to me, on a few occasions, how impressed he is with “my team” (which includes Leo and JT), how knowledgeable my team is regarding the new cybersecurity protocols and government flow down requirements, and how far ahead we are of our competition.
I hope the work done on this project provides an opportunity for IT Support RI to grow its own customer base, as they are becoming true experts in this growing cybersecurity space.
Since IT Support RI has taken over as our IT Department, we have gone from needing someone here all week to now only one day a week. Even if a project or emergency comes up unexpectedly, we can quickly call a tech onsite (or handle remotely) to deal with our issues. They continue to steer our tech needs in the right direction and guide us towards the best solutions available. I highly recommend IT Support RI services and IT help.
IT Support RI is an IT service and consultation company that focuses on quality support with a personal touch. What makes us different is that we pride ourselves on our dedication to our clients and the rapid response time in which we resolve their IT issues. We firmly believe in preventing IT problems and solving them quickly should they arise. We love all things IT and everyone within our business has a passion for technology, which reflects in our work and service.
