This video introduces the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). It explains the necessity of protecting Federal Contract Information (FCI) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).

Then the instructors provide in-depth information on the CMMC domains “Awareness and Training (AT),” “Asset Management (AM),” and “Physical Protection (PE).” An instructor discusses the Cyber Secure Dashboard developed by the Heartland Science and Technology Group, and how it can be used to determine an organization’s cybersecurity posture and prepare for a CMMC audit. Then the discussion of the CMMC domains resumes with explanations of the domains “Media Protection (MP)” and “Personnel Security (PS).”

About the full two-day workshop: This recording was made during a two-day virtual workshop preparing instructors to teach an introductory course on the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). The course is intended for use by full-time cybersecurity faculty at community colleges, technical colleges, and universities seeking to better prepare students for the workforce with CMMC certification. The course may also be useful for small business IT and cybersecurity personnel at Defense Industrial Base (DIB) businesses pursuing CMMC certification to compete for U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) contracts. Please note that the course is not designed to train CMMC auditors. Development of the course "Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)" was funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
