Training Overview


DoD is migrating to the new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Framework (CMMC). This new framework is intended to enhance the cybersecurity posture of the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). The CMMC includes assessment and certification to ensure appropriate levels of cybersecurity practices and processes are in place to protect controlled unclassified information (CUI) residing on DoD industry partner networks.

The DoD end goal is for the CMMC Accreditation to be a requirement for all contractors and subcontractors conducting business with the DoD.

The CMMC curriculum was created by cybersecurity practitioners with advanced expertise in the application of government cybersecurity programs.

CMMC FUNDAMENTALS – 1 Day (First day of the CMMC Readiness Workshop)

The primary goal of BAI’s CMMC Fundamentals training is to provide foundational CMMC knowledge that will help DoD contractors think through the implications of CMMC.

Those seeking more in-depth practical knowledge of specific requirements and steps should consider attending BAI’s 3 day CMMC Readiness Workshop.
