Certified CMMC Professional (CCP)

Certified CMMC Professional (CCP)

Overview:

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 its 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.

This course prepares students for the Certified CMMC Professional (CCP) certification, which authorizes the holder to use The Cyber AB Certified CMMC Professional logo, to participate as an Assessment Team Member under the supervision of a Lead Assessor, and to be listed in the CMMC Marketplace. The CCP certification is also a prerequisite for the Certified CMMC Assessor (CCA) certification.

Note : It was announced at the CMMC-AB June 2022 Town Hall that the newly rebranded organization would be The Cyber AB and its website also changed to cyberab.org.

Course Objectives:

In this course, you will learn about the CMMC Model, framework, context, and application within the DoD, as well as the expectations and requirements imposed upon organizations that do business with the DoD. It will also help students to identify threats to cybersecurity and privacy within an IoT ecosystem and implement appropriate countermeasures.

You will:

  • Identify the threats to the Defense Supply Chain and the established regulations and standards for managing the risk.
  • Identify the sensitive information that needs to be protected within the Defense Supply Chain and how to manage it.
  • Describe how the CMMC Model ensures compliance with federal acquisitions regulations.
  • Identify responsibilities of the Certified CMMC Professional, including appropriate ethical behavior.
  • Establish the Certification and Assessment scope boundaries for evaluating the systems that protect regulated information.
  • Prepare the OSC for an Assessment by evaluating readiness.
  • Use the CMMC Assessment Guides to determine and assess the Evidence for practices.
  • Implement and evaluate practices required to meet CMMC Level 1.
  • Identify the practices required to meet CMMC Level 2.
  • As a CCP, work through the CMMC Assessment process.

Target Student:

This course is a prerequisite for the Certified CMMC Professional program, and it prepares students for the Certified CMMC Professional (CCP) certification exam. Students might consider taking this course to learn how to perform CMMC certification readiness checks within their own organization, or as a consultant to other Organizations Seeking Certification (OSC). The CCP certification is also a required step toward becoming a Certified CMMC Assessor (CCA), so students might take this course to begin down the path toward CCA certification.

Prerequisites:

To ensure your success in this course, you should have some foundational education or experience in cybersecurity. The Cyber AB has established prerequisites for those who wish to apply for CCP certification, such as:

  • College degree in a cyber or information technical field with 2+ years of experience; or
  • 2+ years of equivalent experience (including military) in a cyber, information technology, or assessment field.
