CMMC Accreditation Body to Host ‘National Conversation’ Webinars

The accreditation body for the Department of Defense’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification program will hold a series of webinars starting April 6 to discuss details about third-party assessment organizations and other topics about CMMC, Nextgov reported Thursday.

“As this work continues, we are listening for, and depend upon, your feedback. We encourage you to participate in the National Conversations and our newly-formed Working Groups to help us shape the CMMC ecosystem,” the CMMC-AB wrote in its email to stakeholders.

CMMC-AB expects the certification and training framework document and other deliverables to be ready by April 17 and the outline of exam for auditors by April 30.

Working groups should have evaluated a provisional definition for the CMMC assessment method and provided feedback on the methodology by the end of April.

The body has set an April 15 deadline for applications to the working group that will be in charge of the development of exam questions for auditors. Those exam questions are expected to be ready by May 27.
