WASHINGTON, July 1, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Ariento Inc. has successfully passed its CMMC Level 2 assessment administered by the Department of Defense Industrial Base Cybersecurity Assessment Center (DIBCAC) and is now a certified CMMC Third-Party Assessor Organization (C3PAO).

"We appreciate the special responsibility that comes with being one of the first C3PAOs," said Ariento's Director of Governance, Risk and Compliance Okechi Owuama. "We look forward to working with the DoD and Cyber AB to help CMMC become an operational reality."

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program was developed to fortify the Defense contractor base against the rising threat of cyber-attacks and safeguard sensitive data shared by the DoD with industry. After more than two years of development, assessments are expected to begin this year.
Ariento becoming a C3PAO permits the organization to certify companies pursuing DoD contracts. Organizations that become CMMC certified will have demonstrated compliance with DoD contract cybersecurity requirements, allowing them to contract with the government.
