The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) 2.0, managed by the Cyber AB, is a program which measures an organization's cybersecurity program’s compliance with applicable cybersecurity practices. After full rollout, all contracts providing products or services to the US DoD must obtain the required level of certification under this program in accordance with the DFARS 252.204-7021 clause once rule-making completes in 2023.
This course prepares you for the Certified CMMC Professional (CCP) certification exam. The Certified CMMC Professional (CCP) certification exam is the first step in becoming a Certified Assessor, and it also certifies you as a valuable resource for any organizations needing CMMC support and guidance. In this course, you will learn about the CMMC Model, framework, context, and application within the DoD, as well as the expectations and requirements imposed upon organizations that do business with the DoD. It will also help students to identify threats to cybersecurity and privacy and implement appropriate countermeasures. Topics include understanding the CCMC Model, domains, and practices along with understanding roles, responsibilities, rights, limitations, and inter-relationships between all entities across the Cyber AB ecosystem.
In this course, you will:
- Identify the threats to the Defense Supply Chain and the established regulations and standards for managing the risk.
- Identify the sensitive information that needs to be protected within the Defense Supply Chain and how to manage it.

This course is a prerequisite for the Certified CMMC Professional program, and it prepares students for the Certified CMMC Professional (CCP) certification exam. Students might consider taking this course to learn how to perform CMMC certification readiness checks within their own organization, or as a consultant to other Organizations Seeking Certification (OSC). The CCP certification is also a required step toward becoming a Certified CMMC Assessor (CCA), so students might take this course to begin down the path toward CCA certification.
