The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), managed by the CMMC Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB), is a program through which an organization's cybersecurity program maturity is measured by their initial and ongoing compliance with applicable cybersecurity practices, as well as their integration of corresponding policies and plans into their overall business operations. By Fiscal Year 2026, all organizations providing products or services to the United States Department of Defense (DoD) must obtain at least a CMMC Level 1 certification under this program.
This course prepares students for the CMMC-AB Certified CMMC Professional (CCP) certification, which authorizes the holder to use the CMMC-AB Certified CMMC Professional logo, to participate as an Assessment Team Member under the supervision of a Certified CMMC Assessor, and to be listed in the CMMC-AB Marketplace. The CCP certification is also prerequisite for the other Certified CMMC Assessor certifications (CCA-1, CCA-3, and CCA-5).
