Darkblade Systems Approved as a CMMC Candidate Certified Third-Party Assessor Organization (C3PAO)

Darkblade Systems has been approved as a Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Candidate Certified Third-Party Assessor Organization™ (C3PAO).

Darkblade Systems is proud to announce that we have been approved as a Candidate C3PAO by the CMMC Accreditation Board™ (CMMC-AB) to formally assess Defense Industry Base contracting companies for the new CMMC Certification.  Our first-class cybersecurity team provides tailored compliance programs that are affordable for small businesses to help meet government contract requirements.

The Darkblade Systems team is CMMC-AB approved as a Candidate C3PAO and a Registered CMMC Provider Organization™ (RPO), and includes one of the first CMMC Provisional Assessors™ and several CMMC Registered Practitioners™ (RP).

In 2020, the Department of Defense released the initial version of the CMMC standard, with the requirement that all companies conducting business with the US Government must be CMMC certified at the appropriate level. Certifications will begin for new and existing defense contractors in 2021.

As a Candidate C3PAO, Darkblade Systems’ CMMC Certified Assessor-led teams will conduct assessments for Defense Industrial Base contractor clients and continue to provide tailored pre-assessment advisory services for organizations seeking certification.  Darkblade Systems has a solid reputation among its DoD partners and government customers for providing comprehensive services worldwide and stands ready to enable its clients to prepare for the cybersecurity certifications required for contract bids.
