CMMC Audit Preparation Services

Have you been asked to prepare for a CMMC audit? Lupa Advisors can guide you through the process of ensuring your compliance with CMMC requirements.

Achieve CMMC Readiness With Defense Contracting Experts

Businesses in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) that store, process, or transmit Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) must adhere to the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) requirements. CMMC compliance is a key factor when bidding for Department of Defense (DoD) contracts and involves certification from an independent Cyber Assurance Body (CyberAB) auditor.

Lupa Advisors can help businesses prepare for a successful audit and achieve a perfect Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS) score. We specialize in supporting DoD contractors with comprehensive assessments and robust roadmaps that identify and address vulnerabilities in your digital and physical environment before an audit. We’re your advocate—when you partner with our team, we ensure you understand compliance requirements and have the guidance to meet the standard no matter how often the CMMC framework shifts.

What to Expect From a CMMC Compliance Audit

A CyberAB audit verifies that an organization has met the CMMC requirements and standards. The Cyber Assurance Body (CyberAB) auditor assesses the security measures in place, evaluates how the policies and procedures are implemented, and checks the effectiveness of those safeguards. The auditor also reviews any documentation that supports compliance with CMMC regulations. This includes any reports, certificates, or other relevant materials that demonstrate your business has taken appropriate steps to protect CUI data.

Lupa Advisors is familiar with the nuances of the defense landscape. Our professionals are former defense contractors who have successfully placed CMMC controls and remained highly competitive in the market. We have complex backgrounds to deal with complex issues; as your advocates, we help you move in step with CMMC compliance requirements, gathering the needed documentation and implementing effective security measures. Our experts align your business objectives with the CMMC model so that audit preparation is no longer an obstacle but a natural function of your organization.

What Are CyberAB Auditors Reviewing?

The auditors check many elements to ensure your organization meets the CMMC standards. This includes verifying if your organization’s information systems have been correctly configured and ensuring all necessary personnel have received training on their security obligations. They also confirm access controls for privileged users and review any incident response plans you may have established. Auditors review the implementation of your security controls and request evidence that the measure is implemented correctly by examination, interview, or testing.

Lupa Advisors helps you prepare for auditing according to your unique requirements. We look at how you have implemented security controls and verify that you have evidence that the controls have been installed effectively. Scheduling a gap assessment with our team ahead of time guarantees everything needed for certification is in place before meeting with an auditor from a CyberAB body.

We Help You Earn a High SPRS Score

The assessment process involves getting an evaluation that results in an SPRS score—Security Productivity Rate Score—based on preset criteria outlined by DoD regulations for CMMC compliance certification levels 1 to 3. This score gives organizations a clear indication of their current level of cybersecurity maturity and provides insights into preparing for future audits from independent CyberAB bodies.

Lupa Advisors applies our knowledge and market experience to help you pass the CMMC assessment with high marks. A higher score ultimately leads to greater chances of winning government contracts since they require satisfactory scores from approved auditors from CyberAB bodies to guarantee compliance with CMMC 2.0 standards. Pursuing contracts or grants associated with specific projects or services becomes more manageable with an impressive score, and our team can help you clear the bar year after year.

Our Consultative Services Go Beyond CMMC Audit Preparation

It’s vital to remember that beyond adhering to the 110 controls set by DoD regulators, you must also implement comprehensive cybersecurity measures and adequately trained personnel who understand how these systems work together to achieve complete certification status.

Successful certification and compliance require repeated testing and revision—we’re prepared to assess and reassess your environment as often as needed. We’re constantly expanding our knowledge and ensuring our solutions are advanced enough to support your ability to secure contracts.
