Why Choose ComplianceForge?

ComplianceForge specializes in cybersecurity documentation. We are an industry leader in providing affordable, editable and scalable documentation solutions to support cybersecurity and data privacy compliance efforts. Our products serve as a business accelerator, where we do the heavy lifting for our clients so their cybersecurity and IT staff can focus on the roles they were hired to do. Essentially, we help our clients stay in business by providing the necessary policies, standards, procedures and other documentation they need to address their cybersecurity and data privacy compliance obligations in the most efficient manner possible. We leverage industry-recognized secure practices so our solutions can scale from Fortune 100 multinationals with complex compliance requirements, all the way down to small companies (1-2 person endeavors) that just need single solutions, such as PCI DSS or CMMC compliance.

At ComplianceForge, we have been writing cybersecurity documentation since 2005. Our documentation can help organizations meet common cybersecurity and data privacy compliance obligations, including CMMC, NIST SP 800-171, ISO 27001, EU GDPR, RMF, FedRAMP, PCI DSS, HIPAA, FACTA, GLBA and others. ComplianceForge has options for organizations of any size or industry. We offer multiple solutions to help organizations meet their statutory, regulatory and contractual obligations for cybersecurity and data protection:

Our products are editable templates that are designed to address industry-recognized security requirements. The expectation is that you do have to tailor these documents for your specific needs, since only you know the technologies and resources available in your environment. In designing and building our documentation, we have done the heavy lifting for you and provide a solution that is efficient for our clients to finalize and adopt.

Under each product page, you will find product examples and cost savings estimates. The PDF product examples allow you to see the professionalism and level of detail that we provide when creating our products. The cost savings estimates are insightful for the potential time and money savings by purchasing ComplianceForge documentation instead of hiring a consultant to write the documentation or writing the documentation yourself. 

In addition to the individual products, ComplianceForge also provides bundled compliance solutions to help provide a robust, yet efficient and scalable solution:

ComplianceForge sells more than just policies, standards and procedures. Our solutions can help provide additional detail on how a company implements their policies, standards and procedures. Essentially, this can be considered a playbook of how a company operationalizes these compliance concepts (e.g., risk management, vulnerability management, etc.).

Editable NIST 800-171 & CMMC Policy Templates

Meticulous documentation is the unsung hero in ensuring your organization's compliance with NIST 800-171 and readiness for a CMMC assessment. ComplianceForge is an industry-leader in NIST 800-171 & CMMC compliance. We specialize in cybersecurity compliance documentation and our products include the NIST 800-171 and CMMC policies, standards, procedures and POA&M/SSP templates that companies (small, medium and large) need to comply with NIST 800-171 / CMMC. We've been writing cybersecurity documentation since 2005 and we are here to help make NIST 800-171 & CMMC compliance as easy and as affordable as possible. Our NIST 800-171 & CMMC compliance policies, standards and procedures are designed to scale for organizations of any size or level of complexity, so we serve businesses of all sizes, from the Fortune 500 all the way to small and medium businesses. The focus of NIST 800-171 and CMMC is to protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) anywhere it is stored, transmitted and processed.

NIST 800-171 & CMMC compliance starts with documentation for the very simple fact that when it comes to cybersecurity compliance, if it is not documented then it does not exist. Given that reality, you need to ensure your company has the proper cybersecurity documentation in place:

  • NIST 800-171 & CMMC policies, standards & procedures (specific to NIST SP 800-171 and CMMC 2.0 L2)
  • Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) Plan
  • Risk Assessment Worksheet & Report Template
  • System Security Plan (SSP) Template
  • Plan of Action & Milestones (POA&M) Template
  • A Considerable Number of Reference Documents and other templates

ComplianceForge sells more than just CMMC policy templates policies, standards and procedures. Our solutions can save hundreds to thousands of hours, as compared to writing comparable documentation yourself or hiring a consultant to write it for you.

Premium GRC Content (Secure Controls Framework)

If you use the Secure Controls Framework (SCF), then you will want to buy one of these bundles, since the Digital Security Program (DSP) has 1-1 mapping between the SCF and the DSP. We sell the policies, standards, procedures & more that will compliment the SCF controls that you use! The DSP provides you with SCF-aligned policies, standards, guidelines, metrics, controls and capability maturity criteria. The Cybersecurity Standardized Operating Procedures (CSOP) provides you with SCF-aligned procedures/control activities. These two products alone can save you hundreds of hours of document writing and can help your organization hit the ground running with the SCF.

The Digital Security Program (DSP) is a product we developed for companies that need to comply with multiple requirements, but do not want to be locked into documentation that is formatted to conform with the taxonomy ISO 27002 or NIST 800-53. Essentially, the DSP is a "best in class" approach to security documentation. The DSP metrics come mapped to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF).

Cybersecurity Supply Chain Risk Management

ComplianceForge developed an editable template for a C-SCRM strategy and implementation plan that is based on NIST SP 800-161 Rev 1, which is the current "gold standard" for authoritative C-SCRM guidance.

Privacy & Data Protection (GDPR, CCPA & more)

NIST SP 800-160 is the "gold standard" for security by design, which is important since: (1) you can have security without privacy, but (2) you cannot have privacy without security. Therefore, secure practices are fundamental to any cybersecurity and privacy program.

Our documentation is designed to address common cybersecurity and privacy needs, so that you can demonstrate compliance with your specific requirements. This may be European Union General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR), California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) / California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), NIST Privacy Framework, or SOC 2 Privacy Principles. Regardless of the framework, you need to have evidence of how both cybersecurity and privacy principles are designed and implemented. Our privacy bundles are uniquely designed to help you comply with leading privacy practices!

Risk Management Bundles

Identifying and managing risk is a part of business. We work hard to develop products that assist clients with removing the Fear, Uncertainty & Doubt (FUD) factor that clouds many cybersecurity risk management decisions. These products are editable Microsoft Word & Excel templates, so if you can use Microsoft Office products, then you can use these risk management solutions! 

When you "peel back the onion" and prepare for an audit/assessment, there is a need to address "the how" for certain topics, such as risk management. While policies and standards are designed to describe WHY something is required and WHAT needs to be done, many companies fail to create documentation to address HOW the policies and standards are actually implemented. We did the heavy lifting and created several program-level documents to address this need and the Risk Management Program (RMP) is one of those products that can help demonstrate HOW risk management is structured at your organization.
