CMMC NIST Policy Templates: What Are The Benefits?

CKSS CMMC DFARS Compliance Consultants full compliance toolkit

Most people do not like reading or writing Policies, Procedures, and System Security Plans. This is understandable – most of the documents are usually written in difficult-to-understand language, are not updated on a regular basis and are very resource-intensive.

Do these Scenarios Ring a Bell?

  • Small IT Department
  • Lack of bandwidth
  • Lack of seasoned employees with a background in Cybersecurity
  • Lack of Funding
  • Do not know how to connect between technology/tools and compliance documentations
  • Cannot decipher CMMC Compliance Requirements
  • Hunting for relevant content from the internet. Internet content is outdated, and one is spending time mapping between free stuff and requirements.

Helpful Tips:

  • Do not create documents just because of CMMC Certification – do not produce policies and procedures only for the certification auditor; instead, treat them as living documents that will help your company fulfill normal operations tasks such as business continuity and vulnerability management. Documents should serve a dual purpose of compliance and functionality.
  • Create user-friendly documents that apply to your environment. Procedure documents do not have to be lengthy documents.
  • Documentations are only part of the CMMC Certification. Compliance documents must be socialized into the company culture way before engaging a C3PAO for assessment. IT Personnel must demonstrate knowledge of everyday processes.
  • Documentations must be updated regularly to reflect changing technologies, tools, and IT processes.
