What is CMMC?

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) will be required for the DoD’s Defense Industrial Base (DIB) contracts, products, services, and supply chain to protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).  Certification will be required to work with the DoD.

How do I get Certified?

The CMMC Accreditation Body (AB), a non-profit, independent organization, will accredit CMMC Third Party Assessment Organizations (C3PAO) and individual assessors. The CMMC AB will provide the requisite information and updates on its website.
The CMMC AB has established the CMMC Marketplace.  It includes a list of approved C3PAO as well as other information. Once the Candidate C3PAOs are assessed and certified, formal assessments will begin. Find us on the CMMC AB Marketplace.
