Introduction:

Information security management practices protect the assets of the organization through the implementation of physical, administrative, managerial, technical, and operational controls to ensure that the core concepts of availability, integrity, and confidentiality are supported by adequate security controls designed to mitigate or reduce the risks of loss, disruption, or corruption of information.

As you are aware, the economic and national security of our nation depends on ensuring that the data entrusted to your organization is protected from unauthorized access by adversaries.  CMMC requires an organizational committment to ensure information security practices are integrated into the company's culture.  

My goal is to be your trusted and valued partner in your CMMC maturity journey.
