CMMC Compliance Training: How to Earn Your Black Belt

By Kristen Morales • June 21, 2022

Contractors in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) are looking for direction as Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) 2.0 nears. Compliance with CMMC and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) is your key to doing business with the Department of Defense (DoD) and we can help you navigate those requirements and unlock business possibilities.


CyberSheath’s six-course cybersecurity compliance training is free to join so that you can gain a better understanding of DFARS and CMMC requirements and win new business. By the end of the training module, you and your team will be able to:


  • Assess compliance
  • Compose an SPRS submittal
  • Create an SSP and POAM
  • Efficiently implement fixes to address compliance gaps


The curriculum offers resources and tools to achieve compliance and explains the policies and laws behind CMMC. Each of the six sessions break down a different element from the controlled unclassified information (CUI) stored in your environment to compliance strategies. Each session ends with an exam and the opportunity to earn a belt if you become a ninja on that topic. Ninjas who receive their black belt will be honored on the wall of fame at CMMC CON 2022 on Sep 28.
