We welcome back Brian Hajost, COO of SteelCloud, LLC on the latest ContinuousX Podcast as we discuss the importance of explicit compliance in the ATO and A&A processes as well as the benefits of using machine-readable CBOMs (Configuration Bill of Materials) to ensure closed-loop compliance reporting in production.
The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) is a comprehensive set of rules and regulations that governs the procurement process for federal government contracts. In this training, we cover the purpose of the FAR, then move on to explore its structure of the FAR.
This Sales Intelligence Briefing provides in-depth analysis of the 2023 National Cybersecurity Strategy.
Vendor risk management (VRM) has traditionally been limited to conducting point-in-time risk assessments to decide whether or not to engage with a vendor, by means of emails and spreadsheets with dozens or hundreds of questions. These programs are manual, time-consuming, and resource intensive; most importantly, they fail to address and mitigate risk with an ongoing approach, offering poor visibility over the evolving third-party risk landscape.
Adapt and Persevere: In-depth analysis of the most significant cybersecurity events and trends.
An integrated solution for securing application delivery.
Digital transformation means that businesses are relying on their IT networks and applications more to connect with their employees and customers. These businesses need to optimize the Application Experience [AX] through application availability,
agility, and performance.
Load balancing technology is a key piece of the IT architecture to create the ideal AX topology Load balancers ensure that applications are always available through robust application pooling and advanced health checking. Finally, load balancers improve application performance with acceleration including encryption/decryption, and content offload technologies that reduce server loads.
With cybercriminal attacks on the rise, organizations need to do more than ever to mitigate risks to their web applications. However, application security is a multifaceted and ever-changing task that needs to be applied at multiple levels of the application infrastructure.
This fundamental training focuses on contract types, including IDIQs, GWAC, MACs, MAS, and COOPs. We delve into each, providing a 101 understanding, as well as their applications across the contracting landscape.
Complying with laws and regulations such as FISMA, HIPAA, GDPR, FedRAMP, CMMC and the hundreds of other laws that organization’s face can be overwhelming. In addition to compliance, information security risks have never been more severe. With a dynamic threat and regulatory landscape, maintaining an acceptable level of risk is virtually impossible for most organizations. Ignyte provides the assurance you need to manage your program with confidence.
The ContinuousX Podcast welcomes Brian Hajost, SteelCloud’s Chief Operating Officer, to discuss the Compliance Bill of Materials (CBOM) and how automating your CBOM serves as the bedrock for threat hunting, prevention, intrusion detection and all your security needs.
According to Gartner, around 75% of organizations that use the cloud deliberately adopt a multicloud strategy, up from 49% in 2017. Most organizations use some combination of the “Big 3”— Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and GoogleCloud Platform—which together account for 63% of global spend.
But while leaders continue to default to cloud, technologists are falling behind when it comes to learning new cloud technologies. Only 8% of technologists have extensive experience with cloud tools. The gap between what leaders want and what technologists can execute on creates three foundational obstacles to multicloud success.
We’re here to help you navigate the road to multicloud—and lend you a hand overcoming the most common multicloud speedbumps. So hop in.
The White House released an Executive Order in December 2021, designed to rebuild trust in the government. Public sector organizations are under tremendous pressure to comply with this. Fortunately, this executive guide will reveal how automation can help organizations cope with these increased demands.
Government organizations looking for new technology are bound by outdated requirements lists—but software that meets a list of requirements doesn’t necessarily improve collaboration and efficiency.
To get a snapshot of the current role of technology in federal acquisition — particularly for those on the frontlines in contracting and procurement organizations, Federal News Network produced this survey for Appian. The results offer insights from mid-tier federal employees across government about their use of IT tools to perform their jobs.
While the data points to changes on the horizon and efforts underway to modernize acquisition technology, the anecdotal comments identify three common themes:
- There’s still a lot of legacy technology within government contracting organizations that requires manual processes.
- There are multiple systems, often on premise, serving different parts of the buying process within many agencies — and many lack integration.
- Federal acquisition professionals see the potential for automation and innovation in streamlining work demands and workflow.
