Ben Tchoubineh, chair of the training committee within the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Accreditation Body, and Nicole Dean, a CMMC board member, have stepped down from their posts, FCW reported Thursday.

A spokesperson for Karlton Johnson, chairman of the board of directors at CMMC, confirmed the resignations to FCW in an email. The CMMC-AB is advancing efforts to train enough assessors to perform in-person audits of defense companies’ readiness when it comes to cybersecurity. 

The body is also expected by summer of 2021 to come up with the training ecosystem with organizations that work on course materials and facilitate assessor training, according to the report. Tchoubineh, who also served as a CMMC board member, said in January that classes and formal training content could be available by the late spring or early summer.
