Posted by Shane Vinup on Apr 20, 2021 9:37:58 AM

The Department of Defense is implementing the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) to regulate cybersecurity preparedness across the federal government’s defense industrial base (DIB). Below, we will review the CMMC certification, the DIB, CMMC levels, and how Cyber Advisors is available to prepare you for this critical certification.

Cyber Advisors is an approved Registered Provider Organization (RPO). The RPOs and RPs in the CMMC ecosystem provide advice, consulting, and recommendations to clients to help you navigate the CMMC.
