RESTON, Va. — June 22, 2022 — Contractors in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) often try to win contracts with the Department of Defense (DoD) without a complete solution for solving Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) compliance requirements.

To help strengthen this matter of national security, CyberSheath, the largest CMMC managed service vendor, is offering a free, six-course training program to inform contractors of what CMMC is, where to start and how to ready your business for compliance.

The curriculum offers resources and tools to achieve compliance and explains the policies and laws behind CMMC. Each session ends with an exam and the opportunity to win a belt if you become a “ninja” on that topic. Ninjas who receive their black belt will be honored on the ninja black belt wall of fame at CMMC CON 2022 on September 28.

“At CMMC CON 2021, contractors who received their black belts were honored on a ninja wall of fame, and with CMMC 2.0 quickly approaching, we’re looking forward to honoring a new class of ninjas,” said Eric Noonan, CEO of CyberSheath. “The security of this data is so important that we’re offering this six-week course at no cost for contractors so they can understand how to achieve compliance.”

Contractors that complete the module will be able to assess compliance and efficiently implement fixes to fill any gaps after learning the following topics:
