CEO Rich McAdams adds Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) to his list of certifications.

The vendor-neutral CISSP certification is the ideal credential for those with proven deep technical and managerial competence, skills, experience, and credibility to design, engineer, implement, and manage their overall information security program to protect organizations from growing sophisticated attacks. 

Backed by (ISC)², the globally recognized, nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the information security field, the CISSP was the first credential in the field of information security to meet the stringent requirements of ISO/IEC Standard 17024. Not only is the CISSP an objective measure of excellence, but also a globally recognized standard of achievement. The CISSP also meets the requirements under U.S. Department of Defense Directive 8570.1 for IAT Level III, IAM Level III, and IASAE Level II positions.

December 31, 2017 Will Be Here Before You Know It!

December 31, 2017 is the deadline for government contractors to be in compliance with the DFARS Supplement regarding data safeguarding requirements. As we get closer to the deadline, cybersecurity expertise to support these efforts will be harder to hire and will likely demand higher rates. Don’t be in a position where either the federal government or your prime cut you off because you can’t certify that you’re compliant with NIST 800-171.

Back on December 30, 2015, effective upon publication, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) published a three-page interim rule revising its earlier August 2015 interim rule on Safeguarding Covered Defense Information. 80 Fed. Reg. 81,472 (Dec. 30, 2015), available here. The new interim rule gives contractors considerably more time to implement the requirements of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-171, Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Information Systems and Organizations. DoD issued this new interim rule without the prior opportunity for public comment “to provide immediate relief from the requirement to have NIST 800-171 security requirements implemented at the time of contract award.” Unfortunately, too many contractors took this relief to be more than just a delay. Half of the extra time has now passed, and some companies are well on their way to compliance. And some haven’t even started.
