RESTON, Va. — June 13, 2023 — Federal contractors grapple with evolving cybersecurity controls and requirements amid the need to achieve and maintain compliance. Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) 2.0 is coming and companies that work with the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) need to gain an understanding of the new standards.
CyberSheath, the largest CMMC managed service vendor, is offering free training to help. The company opened registration for its six-course training program to support DIB contractors as they navigate the complexities of compliance.
The curriculum offers resources and explains the policies and laws behind CMMC. Each session ends with an exam and the opportunity to win 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 2023 on Sept. 27.
“Our wall of fame has over a hundred honorees, and we’re eager to induct a new class this year at our fourth annual CMMC CON,” said Eric Noonan, CEO of CyberSheath. “Educating contractors has always been important to us because dealing with the Department of Defense is a matter of national security, and too few companies are prepared to face the risks associated with handling such sensitive data.”
At the end of the module, contractors will be able to fill any gaps that may exist in their compliance posture. They’ll learn about the following topics:
Session Level Topic
1 White Belt How to identify CUI
2 Purple Belt What is scoping and why should you worry about it?
3 Orange Belt How to conduct an assessment
4 Blue Belt Step-by-step guide for Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS) submittal
5 Brown Belt How to draft an audit-ready system security plan (SSP) and plan of action and milestones (POAM)
6 Black Belt How to strategically address implementation and managed compliance
Registration for the training course is open through June 30 and registration for CMMC CON 2023 is open through September 26.
