If you’re not familiar with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), welcome aboard, and read all about it here.
Compliance within the Cyber Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) ecosystem is no easy feat. Achievement can mean months, if not years, of systematic changes to organizations and organizational systems. These modifications can quickly ensnare legacy systems and impact existing operational work flows. The 17 domains of the framework range from technical to cultural. The steps needed to fulfill these projects require dutiful project management with scope scaled congruently with company size. The certification assessment conducted by a Certified Third-Party Assessor Organization (C3PAO) is a formidable project, regardless of company size, and similarly scales in scope and complexity with company size.
The Certified CMMC Professional (CCP) certification empowers Project Managers to traverse the ecosystem established to protect the DoDs Defense Industry Base (DIB) and its approximate 300,000 suppliers. It also provides the knowledge to manage the internal-side of a certification assessment that 80,000 DIB organizations, referred to as Organizations Seeking Certification (OSC) are facing in the near-term. Blending the cybersecurity practices of CMMC with preexisting project management knowledge ensures the organization’s assessment goes smoothly because the 110 required security practices are demonstrably performed, documented, and managed (at Level 2).
The CCP helps maximize the OSC’s homefield advantage. Speaking the same language and anticipating perquisites can shorten the time commitment and minimize the cost for your organization. These benefits are most observable while preparing for, and passing, the certification assessment, though they continue in the sustained management of the cybersecurity program.
An in-house CCP will know how to prepare for a CMMC Assessment, and how to ensure the compliance program remains “alive” since each organization will have to re-certify every three years.
The Certified CMMC Professional (CCP) training program through Monarch ISC (CMMC Registered Practitioner Organization (RPO), Licensed Training Partner (LTP), and C3PAO, leverages years of experience merged with the accredited curriculum authorized through the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Accreditation Body (CMMC AB). This one-week instructor-led live online training will empower students to not only prepare for their CCP exam, to be released soon, but also identify gaps within their organization’s cybersecurity program and begin preparing their OSCs for certification.
