The state of NIST/CMMC compliance today

Get a 2023 update on NIST security framework and CMMC compliance. Business with the government is Virginia’s #1 industry. The government is sick of spending billions on projects only to find the data leaked onto the Internet. Due to this many government contracts require security compliance to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-171 standard. For years businesspeople didn’t take the 110 security controls seriously. Now we are seeing deals being lost to the Supplier Performance Risk System score. Ian has helped dozens of organizations implement compliance programs since 2017 in his role of vCSO.
