Cybersecurity extends to all entities delivering products or services to the federal government. The Program Protection – Cyber Credentials Program focuses on the standards, controls, and frameworks needed for safeguarding controlled unclassified information (CUI) and other assets throughout the supply chain. This three-course program supports the competency standards set by NCMA’s ANSI-accredited, Contract Management StandardTM Publication (CMS), and the corresponding Contract Management Book of Knowledge (CMBOK) standards. It is also DAU-aligned. Participants of this program will obtain:

  • An understanding of the role contracting professionals play in cybersecurity management, including the strategies they can employ to support the reduction of security threats, vulnerabilities, and risks during acquisition planning and contract performance management
  • Interpretation of cybersecurity laws and regulations and the ability to determine which apply to an agency’s requirements during the acquisition process, with specific emphasis on cloud services
  • The foundation contracting professionals need to oversee the supply chain 

After the successful completion of each individual course, you will be sent an electronic Training Certificate. Upon completion of all program requirements, you will receive a specialized digital badge identifying the Program Protection – Cyber Credentials Program and the associated competencies attained.
