CMMC for Business Professionals: A Practical Guide to Getting Ready for CMMC

Provided by


The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), managed by The Cyber AB (formerly known as the CMMC Accreditation Body or the 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. Once rule-making has concluded and CMMC 2.0 has been implemented, all organizations providing products or services to the United States Department of Defense (DoD) must comply with the requirements of their applicable CMMC Level.
