Since this month our focus is on social engineering, we wanted to compile a list of various news articles to keep you in the know and updated on recent events:
This week, the Cyber AB (formerly CMMC AB) made a major announcement at their July Town Hall. They reported that the CMMC program is moving forward and voluntary CMMC assessment will begin next month! These assessments are being led by accredited C3PAOs (CMMC Third-Party Assessment Organization) and will convert into CMMC assessments when the CMMC Rule Making goes into effect in May 2023.
CyberNINES is a veteran-owned small business, our president, Scott Singer, along with several other employees are retired Navy veterans. So, this month we decided our cybersecurity focus would be "Loose Lips Sink Ships!" an old-time navy reference to "beware of unguarded talk". We thought this idiom funnily represents one of the biggest cyber threats today known as Social Engineering.
