Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Training, CMMC Certification Training

MIL-STD-464 Training

Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Training, CMMC Certification Training is a 2-day hands on training certification preparation course.

Delivery Method

  1. Live, Online (Scheduled Time)
  2. In Class (Anytime)
  3. On Demand (At Anytime over the Web)
  4. Blended Learning (On Demand plus Instructor Support)
  5. Private Team Training at your Organization Location or at Tonex Locations (Dallas, TX, or Washington DC)

CMMC is a unified cybersecurity standard for future DoD acquisitions. CMMC Model v1.0 encompasses the following:

  • 17 capability domains; 43 capabilities
  • 5 processes across five levels to measure process maturity
  • 171 practices across five levels to measure technical capabilities

Participants will learn about the CMMC certification and its procedure developed by the Department of Defense (DoD) to certify contractors have the controls to protect sensitive data including Federal Contract Information and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).

  • Prepare your organization and professionals for CMMC compliance by learning the requirements for five levels of cybersecurity maturity (Different CMMC Levels).
  • Learn to be agile and adapt quickly by learning the rationale behind CMMC policies.
  • Learn the possible implications of CMMC for your GovCon organization.
  • Learn the principals behind securing the supply chain and Cybersecurity Culture.
  • Learn cybersecurity principles behind acquisition and supply chain regarding POSITIONING, NAVIGATION, AND TIMING, SPACE, WEAPON SYSTEMS, COMMAND, CONTROL, AND COMMUNICATIONS and CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE

You will learn about CMMC Model based on best-practices of different cybersecurity standards including NIST SP 800-171, NIST SP 800-53, ISO 27001, ISO 27032, AIA NAS9933 and others.  We prepare you for CMMC by training and educating you through DFARS regulations and NIST 800-171 guidance.  It is the law and there is an increasing number of audits being performed right now, in 2020. Become an expert on CMMC by learning the key concepts, knowing the assessment guidance, and materials that help you to get certified.

CMMC Levels and Requirements

The DoD will classify the risk profiles through marking the RFP with list a CMMC level requirement from 1-5. Having proof of certification at that level would be a requirement to even submit a bid to any given RFP

  • Level 1 and 2
  • The lower levels (1-2) apply to DoD contractors who don’t deal with Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).
  • Level 3 and 4
  • In middle levels (3-4), DoD contractors handle CUI. This is information like schematics for DoD equipment. Data which lets adversaries reverse-engineer or learn about military capabilities.
  • Level 4 and 5
  • At the highest levels, (4-5), the CUI being protected is high stakes.

CMMC Level Classifications 

  • Processes are tailored and improvement data is shared
  • Practices are periodically evaluated for effectiveness
  • Processes are guided by policy
  • Processes are documented
  • Processes are ad hoc

We will go over all CMMI (Draft) Domains have seventeen (17) sections:

CMMC Glossary by CMMC Accreditation Body
(Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification)



Accreditation – The process of issuing Licenses and Certificates.

Accreditation Body Board of Directors – The board of directors is the governing body of a nonprofit. Individuals who sit on the board are responsible for overseeing the organization’s activities. Directors meet periodically to discuss and vote on the affairs of the organization. The board of directors, as a governing body, should focus on the organization’s mission, strategy, and goals as defined in the bylaws.

Advisory Councils – Advisory Councils operate at the discretion of, but independently from the board, to inform and advise the board from the perspective of the Advisory Council’s membership. The advisory council’s leaders participate in the board as a non-voting member.

Affiliates – Business concerns, organizations, or individuals that control each other or that are controlled by a common third party. Control may consist of shared management or ownership; common use of facilities, equipment, and employees; or family interest.

Assessment – Formal process of assessing the implementation and reliable use of issuer controls using various methods of assessment (e.g., interviews, document reviews, observations) that support the assertion that an issuer is reliably meeting the requirements of a standard.  In the context of CMMC, Assessments are performed against the requirements set forth in the CMMC for the OSC’s desired CMMC Level.  Source: NIST SP 800-79-2 (adapted)

Assessor – A person who has successfully completed the background, training, and examination requirements as outlined by the CMMC-AB and to whom a License has been issued.  Assessors are not CMMC-AB employees.

Asset Owner – A person or organizational unit (internal or external to the organization) with primary responsibility for the viability, productivity, security, and resilience of an organizational asset. For example, the accounts payable department is the owner of the vendor database.  Source: RMM

Association – The process of linking an Assessor’s License Number with the License Number of a C3PAO.

Audit – Independent review and examination of records and activities to assess the adequacy of system controls, to ensure compliance with established policies and operational procedures, and to recommend necessary changes in controls, policies, or procedures.  Source: NIST SP 800-32

Certified 3rd Party Assessment Organization (“C3PAO”) – An Entity with which at least two Assessors are Associated and to which a License has been issued.

Certificate – A Record issued to an OSC upon successful completion of an Assessment which evidences the CMMC Level against which the OSC has been successfully assessed.

Certification – The process of receiving a Certificate.

CMMC – The set of standards initially defined by the DoD against which an OSC is to be Assessed.

CMMC Certified Organization – An Organization whose cybersecurity program has received a CMMC Certificate from the CMMC-AB.
