What is CMMC?


The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is the newest assessment framework released by the United States Department of Defense (DoD). This framework was designed to meet the needs of the ever-evolving landscape of cybersecurity, and increase the trust in compliance measures to standards published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. It is a set of standards and practices that organizations must follow to protect sensitive government information.

By 2025, recipients of DoD contracts will be required to meet the CMMC compliance provisions.

This training program supports students in meeting these requirements and prepares them to earn the Cybersecurity CMMC Professional (CCP) and Certified CMMC Assessor (CCA) certifications.
