OSC Edge is pleased to announce that its information security service line has received Certified 3rd Party Assessment Organization (C3PAO) candidate status from the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB) CMMC-AB | Open San Consulting (OSC Edge) Quality Assessments-C3PAO | Marketplace (cmmcab.org). C3PAO candidate status can be granted only to organizations meeting the initial requirements for certification, which includes license agreement, organizational background checks, 100% U.S. citizen business owned and association with an audit assessor. Final approval status as a C3PAO is received after successful completion of a CMMC Level 3 Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) assessment.
As part of OSCE Edge’s Information Security Services, our CMMC certification offering is an important piece of the cybersecurity suite of services we’ll provide to organizations. CMMC requirements, for maturity levels 1-3, are presently being incorporated into the various Department of Defense (DoD) contract requirements for all types of suppliers within the overall Defense Industrial Base (DIB).
“Our anticipated C3PAO status represents continued growth for OSC Edge in our desire to serve our Commercial and Public Sector customers and help strengthen their security postures. Over the past two years, we’ve made significant investments in acquiring the needed talent, infrastructure, and tools to accomplish our goals and be the go-to trusted partner and advisor for our customers,” says Tiffany N. Bailey, CEO/President of OSC Edge.
Bailey continues, “We now await final process disposition from the CMMC-AB. As a Systems Integrator that is an 8(a) Woman-owned Small Business, we’ve made a concerted effort to position ourselves to be amongst the first to gain the authorized C3PAO status. We are excited to soon be able to offer these services to the US Defense Industrial Base.”
OSC Edge is committed to the defense industry and community. Our priority is to stay up to date with the latest changes and remain at the forefront of every new announcement and designation, so we know exactly how to help our clients.
