Known more commonly as NIST, the National Institute of Standards and Technology provides cybersecurity frameworks that not only are integral for many government and Department of Defense contracts but are also widely accepted as a solid launch point for most organizations’ cybersecurity efforts. Schellman has been operating in the federal compliance space for years as an accredited FedRAMP 3PAO, and now as a CMMC C3PAO. Over that time, we’ve helped many of our clients decipher the many NIST frameworks as they determined the right direction for them and their environment.
Did you know? The Council of Economic Advisors estimates that malicious cyber activity cost the U.S. economy between $57 billion and $109 billion in 2016. And unfortunately, in the years since, cybercrime has only become worse. (The Center for Strategic and International Studies estimates that the total global cost of cybercrime was as high as $600 billion in 2017.)
