Ty Schieber, board chairman of the accreditation body for the Pentagon’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program, said certification and audit data of contractors seeking accreditation under CMMC will be hosted on the Department of Defense Information Network, Nextgov reported Tuesday.

“DOD intends to maintain their instance [of the repository] on the DOD network and we will be responsible for populating that,” Schieber said Tuesday during a press conference.

Schieber said individuals seeking to become certified CMMC assessors have begun applying for the formal education program, which could begin later this year or early 2021.

“I’m pleased to report that we had a very successful ‘warm opening’ with over 167 transactions,” he said.
