ADS Deepens Cybersecurity Footprint with CMMC Leadership

The leading-edge technology and engineering solutions provider adds to its industry-leading Operational Technology expertise with an expert team to assist organizations in certification


Rockville, MD, February 2, 2021 – Acquired Data Solutions (ADS), a leading-edge technology and engineering solutions provider, continues to deepen its expertise and leadership across the cybersecurity space.

ADS brings over 20 years of expertise in the Operational Technology (OT) arena, including risk analysis, test and evaluation, and computer security support, all key components of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) requirements. Along with this, ADS and its team of industry-leading experts, such as Leighton Johnson, CISSP, CISM, CMMC-AB Provisional Assessor L-3, deliver added value to organizations they serve in sharing their expertise to successfully lead them through the process, which is a critical enabler of contractual work and growth potential.

  • In January 2020, the Department of Defense (DoD) found that the existing initial management oversight and management of the security and safety of its support information between contractor and supplier environments was largely insufficient.
  • This led to new regulations requiring multi-faceted approaches to security and integrity of data in the CMMC certification process.
  • ADS’ Leighton Johnson became a certified CMMC Provisional Assessor in September 2020.

Consisting of 17 domains, the CMMC certification delivers guidance to organizations on cybersecurity practices, processes, and capabilities for suppliers and vendors to ensure DoD-focused contractual information and specialized unclassified data fulfills the current requirements.

“We are proud to count leading experts in the cybersecurity field, such as Leighton Johnson, as part of the ADS team,” said Steve Seiden, President of Acquired Data Solutions. “His track-record, spanning more than four decades and several books, not only delivers the essential edge we need to keep a continual pulse on the evolving cybersecurity industry, but forms a key area where we drive even greater value to the clients we serve.”
