Symbol Security Launches CMMC Compliance Training Course
Symbol Security, a company specializing in phishing awareness, has launched an end-user cybersecurity training program for Department of Defense contractors.
The DOD Supply Chain cyber readiness training course is designed to help organizations comply with requirements in the department’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification program, Symbol Security said Wednesday.
CMMC serves to raise the cybersecurity standard among defense contractors and address supply chain management issues in the DOD’s industrial base.
“Our simple and effective training will help DOD supply chain employees understand certain CMMC controls and how they can adhere to those controls, thus reducing their company’s risk of non-compliance,” said Craig Sandman, president and co-founder of Symbol Security.
Symbol Security added that it will focus on reinforcing proper user behaviors to prevent non-compliance caused by user error or user ignorance.
The training program will also educate employees on recognizing and reporting insider threats, defending against social engineering attacks and properly managing and protecting controlled unclassified information.
Symbol Security touted the benefits of its program for the DOD supply chain and government consultants.
Bill Palifka, CEO of cyber advisory firm Cymonix, said many of his company’s clients are seeking counsel on the CMMC audit process and relevant preparations.
Symbol Security said it will launch its training services through third-party consultants and managed security service providers that are already conducting CMMC-related work with their clients.
Headquartered in Mountain Lakes, New Jersey, Symbol Security is a cybersecurity company that offers a software-as-a-service platform designed to train organizations through simulated phishing attacks.
