The CCP Essentials course provides you with an instructor-assisted, eight-hour introduction and comprehensive overview of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program. Participants complete nine modules that introduce the full curriculum that Southern Connecticut State University and CyberDI will offer when the Certified CMMC Professional (CCP) Courses begin June 2021.

Topics in this overview include:

  • Introduction to the CMMC
  • Understanding the Supply Chain
  • Protecting Sensitive Data
  • Understanding the CMMC Methodology

You will engage with Rick Dawson, our lead instructional designer, as he introduces one module from each unit covered in our full five-day Certified Professional Course in a direct instruction video, utilizing the best principles of cognitive science and multimedia learning theory.

Each module begins with a brief self-assessment and an overview video, followed by a series of engaging online activities with other community members – as you read, write, and participate in purposeful discourse. The module ends with a brief post-assessment – and more importantly – a learner’s journal to help track your knowledge growth. Southern Connecticut State University and CyberDI want to give you an opportunity to try our curriculum as you consider making us your long-term training partner. Join us and come see what makes us the leader in CMMC space.

Southern Connecticut State University has partnered with Data Intelligence Technologies’ CyberDI Division to provide the best Cybersecurity Maturation Model Certification.

We launched our CMMC, the new cybersecurity certification required of all defense contractors, to help stop the one trillion dollars stolen annually in cybercrime and to protect the Connecticut defense economy.

Contractors who do not comply with the new certifications cannot apply for future defense funding and could face legal action for incorrectly submitting cybersecurity reports.

Southern Connecticut State University, in partnership with CyberDI, will lead efforts around workforce development. We will support and train professionals to ensure we protect our National Security.

What is CMMC?

CMCC Model with 5 levels of cyber security

 

The Department of Defense created the CMMC model as a cybersecurity standard for the Defense Industry Base (DIB). As a nation we must protect the supply chain of 300,000 companies globally.

CMMC assessments occur across five levels of maturity, with level 1 requiring the most basic cybersecurity and level 5 requiring the most advanced with 171 embedded practices and processes.

Does My Company Need a CMMC Assessment?

Do you handle Federal Contract Information (FCI) or Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI)? If you answered yes, then you need an assessment. While Southern only provides training courses, our partners can help you prepare for assessments, and we can introduce you to certified assessors.

What is FCI?

Federal Contract Information is anything created by the federal government that is not meant for public release.

Companies that hold FCI will require a Level One CMMC assessment. This can include a plumber who has schematics for job to a machine shop.

What is CUI?

Controlled Unclassified Information is any information generated by the government or for the government with protections covered by federal law or regulations.

Companies that hold or create CUI will require a Level Three assessment. Readiness represents a major investment, and SCSU can help reduce the cost and fear.
