Advanced Assessment Academy

CMMC 2.0 Training Experts

Advanced Assessment Academy was founded in 2022 to help train and support the government contracting community on everything related to the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). Whether you are a contractor trying to achieve compliance or a government procurement specialist navigating new CMMC rules, Advanced Assessment Academy has a wealth of resources and expertise to help you and your team achieve CMMC success.

What is CMMC?

The Defense Industrial Base (DIB) has more than 340,000 suppliers. These suppliers consist of large and small to medium sized businesses. The Department of Defense (DoD) and other government organizations are and will soon mandate compliance with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). Increasing the cyber resilience of the supply chain which includes over a million companies in addition to the DIB is a substantial challenge but an important one. Nation state and other cyber actors are in constant pursuit of our nation’s most vital intellectual property and innovations. In addition, cyber-attacks aimed at the supply chain can weaken or impede our nation’s readiness and ability to produce the products and services our nation relies on to defend itself not only against enemies but also the products that can ensure the health of our nation.

The CMMC is about reducing the risk to the nation and its supply chain and increasing the cyber resilience and in turn the reliability of our nation’s vital resources.

About Advanced Assessment Academy

Advanced Assessment Academy (AAA) has been asked to go beyond the IT realm and ensure that we prioritize solutions and best practices for acquisition personnel, Lawyers, , Program Managers, and Executive Leadership which support supply chain manufacturers. AAA has developed substantial relationships with the leaders in manufacturing cyber threat detection and mitigation. The AAA team leverages our extensive background in risk management and compliancy solution so your organization can accelerate cyber compliance in a cost effective manner.

In addition, AAA has developed a set of unique approaches to tackling the cybersecurity compliance and knowledge gap. Our Live instruction-led and virtual instructor-led training events are leading the way in connecting industry with knowledge and solutions across the country. The AAA team is a collection of some of the top cybersecurity practitioners in the nation. If you are going to defend the supply chain from hackers, its best to learn from the experts who have contributed to our national standards as part of the process.

AAA utilizes its knowledge of DoD and other cybersecurity mandates that include CMMC, CUI, DFARS 252.204-7012, NIST SP 800-171, the NIST Cybersecure Framework, and NIST SP 800-53. These requirements provided your organization with the opportunity to self-assess and improve your organizations cybersecurity posture.

We recognize the self-assessment process is challenging as a verification mechanism and is difficult to enforce to validate your efforts. In order to verify DIB organizations are implementing these requirements, the DoD announced in mid-2019 a new cybersecurity compliance requirement (Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification, aka the CMMC) that will make it mandatory and implement a third-party assessment requirement of DoD suppliers. We have developed curriculum to educate executive leadership on the risk and rewards and understand the decisions that need to be made to invest in the right areas to comply with the new regulation.
