Event Details

16 hours

Combination lecture and classroom exercises


When fully operational in 2025, CMMC will be mandatory for all entities doing business with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) at any level. You will no longer be allowed to self-report to be certified as compliant but will instead have to pass an audit by a certified third-party assessment organization (C3PAO). If you work with the DoD or DoD Defense Industrial Base (DIB), you need this training. It takes time to complete so get started now.

CMMC is a unifying standard for the implementation of cybersecurity across the DIB. The CMMC framework includes a comprehensive and scalable certification element to verify the implementation of processes and practices associated with the achievement of a cybersecurity maturity level.

QSG’s CMMC Foundations Workshop enables participants to understand the fundamental concepts and principles of the CMMC model. It contains lecture sessions illustrated with graphics, examples, and discussions, and encourages interaction between participants by means of questions, suggestions, and quizzes. Training also includes quizzes that are a simulation of the questions of the final exam
