October 28, 2021

Training Camp and ecfirst Collaborate to Deliver Program Virtually, Public & On-Site

Waukee, Iowa — October 28, 2021 — ecfirst, a CMMC Licensed Program Provider (LPP) and a CMMC Licensed Training Provider (LTP) announced a new collaboration with Training Camp, a leading provider of accelerated learning across the U.S., to deliver CMMC certification training across the United States, virtually, public and on-site.

A New U.S. Department of Defense Cyber Certification Program
On January 31, 2021, the U.S Department of Defense (DoD) introduced a new cybersecurity standard, the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). Every cybersecurity and compliance professional, including senior executives, must raise their awareness of this important and valuable cybersecurity standard developed by the U.S. DoD.

Together, working as one team, ecfirst and Training Camp will unlock the full potential of our knowledge and place our clients on the best path for success in the new CMMC ecosystem,” stated Michael McNelis, VP, Enterprise Services at Training Camp.

CMMC directly impacts the cyber supply chain of over 300,000 firms in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). In the near future, we will witness other federal, state and private businesses basing their cyber program on CMMC.

“The journey for individuals starts with the Certified CMMC Professional (CCP) program. This provides the foundation for additional CMMC certification credentials that will be introduced in the near future, including the Certified CMMC Assessor-1 (CCA-1) and Certified CMMC Assessor-3 (CCA-3). Professionals should look to establish their credentials in the CMMC to unleash opportunities in the CMMC ecosystem,” stated Ali Pabrai, chief executive of ecfirst.

Securing the Cyber Supply Chain
The focus of CMMC is on Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). CUI is the information shared with DoD suppliers that requires safeguarding. Built on NIST and other standards, CMMC requires firms processing such sensitive information to achieve certification with this standard.
