HORNE Approved as a CMMC Third-Party Assessor Organization

MEMPHIS, Tenn., May 11, 2021 -- Congratulations to HORNE Cyber on becoming an approved CMMC Third-Party Assessor Organization™ (C3PAO). HORNE became a Registered Provider Organization™ earlier this year and is excited to announce their approval as a C3PAO candidate pending ML3 assessment.

Becoming a C3PAO will allow us to provide CMMC assessment services, partnering with DOD contractors as they prepare to meet upcoming contract requirements. With 1,000s of contractors working towards this new standard and less than 200 approved C3PAOs, the opportunities are endless for our team to assist new and existing clients across the firm, break into new geographies, and develop new relationships.” HORNE Cyber Managing Partner Mike Skinner

The Department of Defense (DOD) relies heavily on private sector contractors to provide essential goods and services, placing them at risk from cybercriminals. Beginning in the fall of 2021 some contracts will be requiring certification, and by 2026 all DOD contracts will require some level of CMMC compliance. DOD contractors should begin preparing for CMMC compliance today, and HORNE is willing to be their partner on the journey to achieving their CMMC strategic goals.
