Strengthening Security: How RemotelyMe Will Help Defense Contractors with CMMC 2.0

By: Craig Reed

In today’s digital age, cybersecurity is paramount, especially for defense contractors tasked with safeguarding sensitive information critical to national security. With the implementation of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) 2.0, defense contractors face new challenges in meeting stringent cybersecurity requirements. However, there’s a beacon of hope on the horizon: RemotelyMe, a cutting-edge software as a service (SaaS) solution, is poised to revolutionize how defense contractors navigate the complex landscape of cybersecurity compliance.

As cyber threats continue to evolve, defense contractors must adapt and enhance their cybersecurity measures to protect classified information and ensure compliance with government regulations. The CMMC 2.0, developed by the Department of Defense (DoD), is designed to strengthen cybersecurity across the defense industrial base by implementing robust security controls and standards.

RemotelyMe’s innovative SaaS offers defense contractors a comprehensive approach to cybersecurity compliance, particularly in light of new requirements and studies related to personnel and suppliers. By leveraging visual neuroscience and cognitive AI technologies, RemotelyMe provides defense contractors with the tools they need to verify trust factors in personnel security, mitigate security risks, and achieve compliance.

“At RemotelyMe, we understand the unique challenges faced by defense contractors in maintaining cybersecurity and compliance,” says David Hall, RemotelyMe’s chief technology officer. “Our software as a service solutions are specifically designed to address these challenges and empower defense contractors to strengthen their security posture and meet the requirements of CMMC 2.0.”

RemotelyMe’s platform maps predictive biomarkers to both career success and business risks, providing defense contractors with valuable insights into employee engagement and potential security vulnerabilities. As defined by the National Institutes of Health, a predictive biomarker is used to identify individuals who are more likely than similar individuals without the biomarker to experience favorable or unfavorable effects related to environmental conditions. In the workplace, this can include high stress and low trust environments that lead to business and security risks. By identifying and addressing risk and trust factors in personnel security, defense contractors can enhance their cybersecurity resilience and mitigate cyber threats.

With the rollout of CMMC 2.0 and the increasing focus on cybersecurity within the defense industry, defense contractors must invest in innovative solutions like RemotelyMe to stay ahead of evolving threats and maintain compliance with government regulations. By partnering with RemotelyMe, defense contractors can bolster their security defenses, safeguard classified information, and demonstrate their commitment to cybersecurity excellence.

Defense contractors also need to be aware of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) 2.0 as this now includes a new Govern Function, or section, that addresses Supply Chain Risk Management (GV.SC). Government agencies must comply with requirements that roll down hill to suppliers, such as establishing roles and responsibilities and understanding any risks posed by supplier personnel. As Gartner and IBM concur that 95 percent of security breaches are caused by human error, such as mistakes that lead to misconfigurations, defense contractors can gain a competitive advantage by using RemotelyMe to certify employees as High Trust Accredited Professionals that exhibit low security risks.

RemotelyMe is currently inviting early-stage investors to join them on their mission to revolutionize cybersecurity in the defense industry, offering a unique opportunity to be part of a potentially groundbreaking venture that is shaping the future of cybersecurity.
