MADISON, WI, January 6, 2021 — Infosec, a market leader in cybersecurity education solutions, today announced its approval as Licensed Training Provider (LTP) for the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB). CMMC-AB is an independent accreditation entity responsible for establishing, managing, controlling and administering the CMMC assessment, certification, training and accreditation processes for the Defense Supply Chain.
“Infosec is proud to be one of the first organizations to receive both CMMC-AB Licensed Partner Publisher and a Licensed Training Provider status from the CMMC-AB,” said Jack Koziol, Infosec CEO and founder. “We’ve helped 1,000s of federal employees and contractors skill up and get certified for over 16 years. Infosec clients in need of CMMC-AB certification can trust they’ll receive the same quality training experience they’ve come to expect from any Infosec boot camp.”
Established by the U.S. Department of Defense, the CMMC Model is used to assess and enhance the cybersecurity posture of the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). It serves to validate the appropriate levels of cybersecurity practices and processes needed to support basic cyber hygiene and protect controlled unclassified information on the Department’s industry partners’ networks.
“CMMC-AB certifications and assessments ensure the Defense Industrial Base supply chain is prepared to protect controlled unclassified information,” said Ben Tchoubineh, Director, CMMC-AB Board of Directors, Chair, Training Committee. “Partner Publishers and Licensed Training Providers like Infosec help us prepare assessors with the knowledge they need to deliver consistent, informative assessments against the defined controls within the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Program.”
Following approval from CMMC-AB, Infosec will add two CMMC-AB boot camps this spring to its expansive catalog of over 100 cybersecurity boot camps: Certified Professional Boot Camp and Certified Assessor Level 1 Boot Camp. In addition to days of live, instructor-led training and CMMC-AB certified course materials, early enrollments will get access to an exclusive CMMC-AB foundational course to bolster their understanding of the CMMC-AB Model and get a head start on exam preparation.
“We’re excited to bring new resources and courses to our federal government and contractor clients,” said Koziol. “For many, passing a CMMC-AB certification exam or assessment is critical to their success. Our CMMC-AB boot camps are backed by Infosec’s Exam Pass Guarantee to ensure students pass the exam on their first attempt — or the next one’s on us.”
