Specific actions will include:
- The co-development of CMMC advisory services, cyber training, and education programs to accelerate CMMC certification, increase cyber adoption and improve cyber protection and resilience. Co-sponsor symposiums, training programs, and podcasts, leveraging their combined cyber and IT expertise.
- Host regular working groups, with other partners, to enable collaboration and communications.
- Source qualified CMMC/ cyber professionals to serve as advocates.
- Establish an independent Industry Cyber Security Advisory Council with peer organizations to advise and educate leaders across government and industry on the continued evolution and effectiveness of CMMC.
In turn, this partnership will focus on bringing together cyber and national security communities to improve awareness and accelerate industry efforts to become more cyber resilient against growing threats.
Speaking of the partnership, Phil Lewis, Titania CEO said: “It’s a privilege to be partnering with the CMMC COE and CMMC COE EU, demonstrating our mutual commitment to innovation and best practice.
