Introduced in January 2020, the DoD’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is fundamentally changing defense acquisitions. Malicious cyber actors increasingly target the Defense Industrial Base (DIB), comprising more than 300,000 organizations. This new DoD standard requires DIB partners to become certified at one of five levels in a progressive cybersecurity model.

Course Introduction

CMMC is currently being introduced as a contract requirement, with full implementation expected by 2025. Using a mix of expert-led lecture, hands-on exercises, and practical suggestions, this course will prepare organizations to adopt CMMC.

This course is taught by two of the CMMC experts (model architects) from Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) Software Engineering Institute (SEI).

* This course is being brought to you by the NDIA Business Institute.



NDIA has a policy of strict compliance with federal and state antitrust laws. The antitrust laws prohibit competitors from engaging in actions that could result in an unreasonable restraint of trade. Consequently, NDIA members must avoid discussing certain topics when they are together – both at formal association membership, board, committee, and other meetings and in informal contacts with other industry members: prices, fees, rates, profit margins, or other terms or conditions of sale (including allowances, credit terms, and warranties); allocation of markets or customers or division of territories; or refusals to deal with or boycotts of suppliers, customers or other third parties, or topics that may lead participants not to deal with a particular supplier, customer or third party.
