Columbus, OH APRIL 27, 2021: Simple Plan IT joins an elite and exclusive group of registered providers across the nation. The CMMC-AB establishes and oversees a qualified, trained, and high-fidelity community of assessors that can deliver consistent and informative assessments to participating organizations against a defined set of controls/best practices within the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Program.
The CMMC Model itself is created and managed by the DoD (Department of Defense). The CMMC Accreditation Body is authorized by the US Department of Defense to be the sole authoritative source for the operationalization of CMMC Assessments and Training with the DOD contractor community or other communities that may adopt the CMMC guidelines and principles.
While the CMMC Standard was created for the Defense Supply Chain, there are many other government agencies and allies of the United States interested in using the CMMC Standard or achieving reciprocity for their standards and stakeholders. The RPOs and RPs in the CMMC ecosystem provide advice, consulting, and recommendations to their clients as they prepare for their official CMMC audit.
