Celerium was formed in 2019 as the branded cybersecurity business unit of a company founded in 2002 following the September 11 attacks. The company delivered situational awareness and readiness solutions to help companies protect themselves against physical threats.
The evolution of the business threat landscape to include cyber threats inspired the creation of the cyber business unit, which became Celerium.
The name Celerium is a combination of the Latin words for Speed (Celeritas) and Control (Imperium) which enforces our mission and focus. Cyber threats must be dealt with quickly, but in a controlled and effective manner.
Today, companies of all sizes face increased pressure from ransomware and other cyber threats. In fact, cyber incidents top the list of leading risks to businesses worldwide in 2022, according to a survey conducted by Allianz. However, a large skills gap in the industry coupled with a lack of resources makes it difficult for companies to implement effective cybersecurity measures.
That’s where Celerium comes in. Through our Cyber Defense Network™ (CDN), we power active cyber defense solutions that are easy to implement and effective in the key areas of network defense and compromise defense. Our CDN suite of solutions also focuses on community defense. In the cyber world, threat actors find the open doors to gain access to multiple targets. By helping improve collective defense of communities, we can make cybersecurity efforts more impactful.
And through our CMMC Academy launched in early 2020, we help contractors to the U.S. Department of Defense and other federal agencies navigate cybersecurity compliance programs, including the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program and NIST 800-171. This is critical to protecting the nation’s sensitive information. The U.S. Department of Defense introduced the CMMC program in late 2019 in an effort to improve the cybersecurity of the 300,000+ contractors and subcontractors in the defense supply chain. Celerium is both a Licensed Partner Publisher (LPP) and a Licensed Training Provider (LTP) as well as a Registered Provider Organization (RPO) with the Cyber Accreditation Body (Cyber AB) – the official accreditation body of the CMMC ecosystem.
Sponsors of the CMMC Academy including Bank of America and Citi, providers of supply chain financing.
