HAMILTON, N.J., Sept. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- If your company is a supplier to the US federal government, the need to demonstrate ongoing compliance with contracts and regulations like the DoD's new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a big deal. Because the risk of burdensome sanctions for noncompliance is very real. Witness the growing number of US Department of Defense (DoD) suppliers prosecuted under the False Claims Act for misrepresenting compliance with NIST SP 800-171.
These challenges are business-critical. But how can resource constrained SMBs rapidly make the necessary compliance process changes while also implementing new security controls?
To give SMBs in the US Defense Industrial Base (DIB) and other small government suppliers a fresh perspective on how they can meet compliance challenges, the latest episode of The Virtual CISO Podcast from Pivot Point Security features Chris Lank. He is Founder and CEO at Ivis Technologies, providers of an affordable SaaS platform to help US government contractors of all sizes manage their risk and compliance programs.
The topics that Chris discusses with host John Verry, Pivot Point's CISO and Managing Partner, include:
- How the CMMC is ratcheting up compliance risk for SMBs in the DIB
- Why prime contractors are demanding CMMC Compliance on a faster timetable than the DoD itself
- How smaller DoD suppliers should approach preparing for CMMC compliance
- What "basic IT hygiene" means in the eyes of the US federal government
- How a solution like Ivis can make the ongoing compliance process much less painful and risky—not just for CMMC but for any applicable regulations
If your company faces the CMMC challenge, deciding whether or not to leverage technology to support certification and ongoing compliance is vitally important. This podcast provides excellent guidance on the key decision factors.
