The Cyber AB

An ecosystem of cybersecurity professionals

The Cyber AB is the official accreditation body of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Ecosystem and the sole authorized non-governmental partner of the U.S. Department of Defense in implementing and overseeing the CMMC conformance regime.

The Marketplace

For Organizations Seeking Certification (OSC), the Cyber AB Marketplace is where you can find accredited service providers that have been officially vetted and authorized by the Cyber AB to help OSCs along their CMMC journey.

When searching for a provider to help you with CMMC, make sure they are listed in the marketplace with the appropriate authorizations and registrations.

Practitioners vs. Assessors

In the CMMC ecosystem, there are two primary categories of service providers: Practitioners (RP/RPA/RPO) and Assesors (CCP/CCA/C3PAO). Both play a key role in your journey to certification, but it’s important to understand how each provider helps.
