CyberNINES Becomes a CMMC-AB Registered Provider Organization

Dec 8, 2020

MADISON, WIS. (Dec 8, 2020) — CyberNINES has been successfully registered with the CMMC Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB) as a Registered Provider Organization (RPO). Additionally, Scott Singer, President of CyberNINES, has been trained and authorized by the CMMC-AB as a Registered Practitioner (RP) associated with the RPO.  

The CMMC Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB) is a non-profit, independent organization providing accreditation services for the CMMC Third-Party Assessment Organizations (C3PAO) and individual assessors. The CMMC framework itself was created by the Department of Defense (DoD) to assess and strengthen the cybersecurity posture across the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). The CMMC ensures the DoD suppliers have the basic cybersecurity hygiene and protection for controlled unclassified information (CUI). 

The CMMC-AB has developed a CMMC Marketplace located at cmmcab.org/marketplace. The marketplace includes a list of approved Registered Provider Organizations (RPOs), Certified-Third-Party Assessment Organizations (C3PAOs), Licensed Partner Publishers (LPPs), Licensed Training Providers (LTPs), as well as individual providers. After the CMMC Marketplace is fully established, the DoD suppliers will be able to select one of the approved provider organizations for its CMMC assessment. 

The CMMC-AB Registered seal signifies that CyberNINES has a basic understanding of the CMMC and its requirements and can provide CMMC consultative services.  

As an RPO, CyberNINES has the following credentials: 

  • Authorized to represent the organization as familiar with the basic constructs of the CMMC Standard  
  • Signifies that the provider has agreed to the CMMC-AB Code of Professional Conduct 
  • Listed on the CMMC-AB Marketplace  

As a Registered Practitioner (RP), Scott Singer, delivers a CMMC targeted advisory service for organizations preparing for CMMC requirements. It also signifies that an RP has agreed to the CMMC-AB Code of Professional Conduct and he can be listed on the CMMC-AB Marketplace. RPO and RP certifications are required to be renewed once a year.
