The 5 Levels of CMMC

Time is ticking on adopting the security postures required by the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). We realize that the requirements can feel overwhelming, but like most problems, they can be broken down into parts. And it just so happens that CMMC is divided into five levels, each tier building upon the previous one. The more of these levels your organization achieves, the better you will look when vying for a DoD contract. Here’s a closer look at what they are.   Read more

COVID-19 has everyone on edge, and attackers are taking full advantage

Ransomware and phishing attacks are not slowing down during the COVID-19 pandemic. On the contrary, cybersecurity threats are actually seeing a tremendous increase while all of this is going on. Even hospitals, where healthcare staff are putting themselves at great risk to treat coronavirus patients, are seeing a rise in the number of ransomware attacks – so much so that even Microsoft sent out an alert earlier this month to healthcare organizations around the globe.

In a previous blog, we shared guidelines put forth by the Department of Homeland Security, NIST, and others regarding what homebound workers can do on their end to take up a stronger security posture. But what about hospitals and other major industries that are more vulnerable now than ever before?   Read more

A Warning from DHS and Other Government Agencies Regarding Remote Working

In light of the growing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, in our previous blog, we highlighted some of the numerous remote working solutions that are available to those who are forced to work from home during this worrying time.

We’re Worried About Healthcare Cybersecurity. You Should Be, Too.

Technology has come a long way. Mostly, it’s improved our lives tremendously. With each new innovation, however, comes danger. And if anything, 2020 has already made this increasingly apparent even though we’re only in February (at the time of posting this article).

Today, we’re going to discuss something very important that affects all of us. There’s an industry that is becoming increasingly vulnerable to the point where it’s actually putting lives in danger. While this may sound alarmist, the problem — and the stakes — are all too real.

To put it bluntly, our healthcare system’s cybersecurity is currently a disaster — and not one that’s “waiting” to happen, either.   Read more
