Summit 7 CMMC Level 1 Project Giveaway

Women Owned Small Business x Cybersecurity Awareness Month

October is both National Cybersecurity Awareness Month and National Women’s Small Business Month

There are over 13 million Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB) in the United States, many of which have critical cybersecurity needs. A large portion of these organizations are in the Defense Industrial Base, or the DoD supply chain, and must ensure that their IT environment meets current federal cybersecurity and compliance mandates. Specifically, many of these women-owned businesses are likely handling Federal Contract Information (FCI) on behalf of the Department of Defense, subjecting them to meet the current CMMC 2.0 Level 1 requirements. 

In celebration of Summit 7’s release of the CMMC Level 1 Solution, we’ve decided to gift five Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB) as a way of:

  • Bringing cybersecurity awareness to the Defense Industrial Base
  • Highlighting these crucial businesses in the DoD
  • Securing the United States Warfighter 

If you are a WOSB and are subject to meeting CMMC Level 1, please fill out the form below to be entered into our group of potential winners. 

On Friday, November 4th, 2022 Summit 7 will announce the winners of the contest and highlight your business as part of the effort to secure the DIB. Be sure to follow our emails, LinkedIn, and YouTube channel for the announcement.
