Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC): Certified Professional

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), managed by the CMMC Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB), is a program through which an organization's cybersecurity program is measured by their initial and ongoing compliance with applicable cybersecurity practices as well as their integration of corresponding policies and plans into their overall business operations. By Fiscal Year 2026, all organizations providing products or services to the United States Department of Defense (DoD) must obtain at least a Maturity Level 1 certification under this program.
