The accreditation body behind the Pentagon's Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification program has launched a new section of its website dedicated to providing contact information for certified practitioners and consultant companies.

The "marketplace" has 346 listings and can be filtered into three categories: provisional assessors, registered practitioners and registered provider organizations.

Seventy-four assessors are listed on the website with contact information including name, address, phone number and email. Some of the assessors have filled out their profiles with additional details on work experience.

The website has 149 registered practitioners who are certified by the CMMC Accreditation Body as consultants to help contractors prepare for the CMMC assessment. However, the registered practitioners are not able to conduct any assessments.

Lastly, the CMMC AB marketplace has 123 RPOs who will also be able to provide consultant services.

Information on certified third-party assessment organizations approved by the CMMC AB is expected to be added to the website soon. No CMMC assessments can be completed until there are accredited C3PAOs to conduct assessments.
